Does Generic Inquiry support a calculated field that is a 'running total'?

I’m trying to create a GI that would look like the following:

Item                                        Beginning Balance               Transaction Qty       Running Balance

12345                                                  10.00                                                                10.00

                                                                                                        20.00                     30.00

                                                                                                         -5.00                     25.00

                                                                                                         10.00                    35.00

                                                                                                        -15.00                    20.00


23456                                                   20.00                                                                20.00

                                                                                                        -10.00                    10.00

                                                                                                            8.00                   18.00


Is this possible with calculated fields?

Hi @rdennisj57! There isn’t really a way to have a running SUM on a single field in a GI unless you make a custom field or maybe SQL view.

This kind of output would require a report to work correctly

Can you suggest an idea of how to build this since the native solution doesn't offer it? I am brainstorming and wondering the same as it would be helpful for a report I have.
