Applications

You have 2 different formulas of using Google Spreadsheet in Legal Office : retrieve data and retrieve grouped sums.

 Warning

Google Drive limits the execution time of scripts; if the data you requested takes too long to be delivered, you might get an error. There is no specific size limit, since the time for Legal Office to respond depends on several factors - although reading data regarding several thousand records is usually fine.

Retrieve Data

The theoretical formula is  = oe_browse (table;columns;filters;orderby:limit). Used it if you want to display the information without grouping it (e.g.: each sales order in the database).Find some the arguments in the table below.

Retrieve Grouped Sums

The theoretical formula is  = oe_read_group (table;columns;group_by;filters;orderby:limit). Use it when you want to display a sum of data (e.g.: total invoiced).Find some arguments in the table below.
