  3. Select "Picking List - Delivery Order" report template

  4. Insert a Calculated Field
    While the view is at Designer,
    Right click 1 Main Data: Delivery Order Master (aka. Master table)
    and Add Calculated Field
  5. Set the property of newly added Calculated Field
    Locate & Select the newly added calculated field
    In Property Grid, rename (Name) to calcPacking
  6. Create new event of GetValue to calcPacking
    Click [+] to expand Scripts
    Click the box on the right of "Get a Value"
    Then click the arrow button, and click (New)
    Report Designer will switch to Scripts editor,
    and calcPacking_GetValue event is created.

  7. Add directive at the top of Scripts, if has not already added.
    • using System.Data;
    • using System.Linq;
  8. Insert scripts into calcPacking_GetValue
  9. Add function of GetSmallestQty
  10. Add function of GetUOMFromItem
  11. Add function of FormatCurrentUomResult

  12. Add a new Label into existing Group Header
    Bind the calcProjDesc to this new label
    Drag calcPacking from 1 Main Data: Delivery Order Master in Field List onto the new label
  13. Click Preview tab to see the result
private void calcPacking_GetValue(object sender, DevExpress.XtraReports.UI.GetValueEventArgs e)
	DataTable tblUOM = GetUOMFromItem(GetCurrentColumnValue("ItemCode"));
	if (tblUOM == null)

	//Get total smallest UOM Qty of same ItemCode and UOMRate 
	decimal smallestQty = GetSmallestQty(GetCurrentColumnValue("ItemCode"), GetCurrentColumnValue("UOMRate"));

	decimal uomRate;
	string result = "";
	foreach (DataRow row in tblUOM.Rows)
		if (smallestQty < 1)

		uomRate = BCE.Data.Convert.ToDecimal(row["Rate"]);
		result = FormatCurrentUomResult(result,
			uomRate > 0 ? Math.Floor(smallestQty / uomRate) : 0,

		//Calculate the remaining Smallest Qty for next UOM
		smallestQty = smallestQty % uomRate;
	e.Value = result;
//ItemCode and UOMRate are the grouping in this report
private decimal GetSmallestQty(object oItemCode, object oUomRate)
	if (oItemCode == null)
		return 0;

	return (Report.DataSource as DataSet).Tables["Master"].AsEnumerable()
		.Where(r =>
			r.Field<string>("ItemCode") == oItemCode.ToString() &&
			r.Field<decimal>("UOMRate") == BCE.Data.Convert.ToDecimal(oUomRate)
		.GroupBy(r => new {
			ItemCode = r.Field<string>("ItemCode"),
			UOMRate = r.Field<decimal>("UOMRate")
		.Select(g => g.Sum(r => r.Field<decimal>("Qty") * r.Field<decimal>("Rate")))
private DataTable GetUOMFromItem(object oItemCode)
	if (oItemCode == null)
		return null;
	return __report.DBSetting.GetDataTable(
		"SELECT UOM, Rate FROM ItemUOM WHERE ItemCode=? ORDER BY Rate DESC", false, oItemCode.ToString());
private string FormatCurrentUomResult(string result, decimal qty, string uom)
	//Format the display text of qty and uom
	if (qty == 0)
		return result;
	string formatQtyUom = string.Format("{0} {1}", qty, uom);
	return string.IsNullOrEmpty(result) ? formatQtyUom
		: string.Format("{0}, {1}", result, formatQtyUom);
