Hi Daniel,

One alternative way to do this, without field calculator, is to use the
"Processing Toolbox" (see menu processing) and use the "Count opints in polygon
(weighted)" algorithm. This should do what you want, but the downside to this
approach is that you end up with a new layer.

If you want to use the field calculator (without creating a new layer) you will
have to look at aggregates and spatial relationship functions. I am not 100%
sure if this would work - I currently don't have the time to test it - but
might be worth a try.

Good luck!

Andreas

Hi. I have a question urgent. What I try to do is then updated columns in a
data layer with another layer. For example , I have two layers A = Poligono , B
= Points . The layer B contains real values. Then would do two things. 1. Count
how many points of the layers B are within the layer A. 2. From the points of
the layer B that are within the polygon layer A, I need the sum of their values
​​and paste this sum in a column of created layer A. I tried to make the
crossing with the "field calculator" function, using the functions:
"geomwithim", "geomintersects" and "intersecting_geom_sum", but without results.

I hope I have been able to explain.

Greetings and thanks for your support.
