Design Flowfield Without SumIndexFields

Hi, I have a table with primary key of 2 fields : field1,Serial No. A flowfield calculates the max serial No. for a value of field1. I see that there is no need to define Serial No. as SumIndexFields. In what cases is it possible ; I thought that is always nessecary to define SumIndexFields. Thanks in Advance.

Hi, No it is not necessary to define SumIndexField always. When you use aggregate function (like SUM, Average etc.) then it is necessary.
