Project: Writing an S-Control

I need an experienced SF developer to create an S-Control for me that can be used to summarise information in child objects into fields in the parent. I believe it's possible to do this using JavaScript in an S-Control, which accesses SF via the API (I have Enterprise Edition). An example of what I mean using the standard objects is putting a Sum Total of the value of all the opportunities on an Account into a single field - i.e. a field on Account called "Opportunities Value Total". That's not a real scenario for us, but our scenarios are similar, just with custom objects.
So the deliverable is a pair of S-Controls that can do this, written in such a way that they can be reused for summarising different information in different objects (we'll be using it in 5-10 different places). The first S-Control simply copies a value from a field in the child (selected using a filter) into a field in the parent. The second control runs a Sum operation on a specific field on the children, and puts that sum value into the parent field.
Please reply to this post if interested or contact me direct.
MK Partners has built many s-controls for this type of purpose.  We can write them to run automatically every time a record is viewed or when a button is pressed by the user.
Please give us a call to further discuss the specific requirements for these s-controls.

Your account value link is great!  When calling up the Update Opp Values (s-control) we get an error saying that the API is not active - does this link only work in enterprise edition? Any suggestions?




Thank you AutoChic,

The scontrol utilizes the API so it isn't normally enabled on Professional Edition organization.  The Enterprise and Unlimited Editions get it enabled with their purchases.
