Display a Field on Home Page

    I have a counter of sorts in one of my tables. Is there a clean way to just display that number on the home page, with a title? If I had a field in a table counting days until christmas, on the home page can i put, "Days Until Christmas" and display the field?

    Mike,

    A common problem I have had.   

    I solved it by making a custom table report where I specify the Record ID#.  This way you have a single field in the report. 

    Then put that report on the dashboard.   It is not as clean a UI experience as I would like but at least it is one piece of data.

    Also make sure you clear the check boxes for Edit and View on the report.  Don't let people drill into it.

    you can also take that number and convert it to  Rich Text field so it will stand out.

    var text DaysToClose = ToText(Round ([MTD Average Business Days to Process Claim (using Dashboard Filters)]));

    "<font size = +3><font color = blue>" & $DaysToClose
