How to add a line with total, to the Order List Letter? 


In Alma-L, peers shared several solutions, Sept. 25, 2017. Check the archives or note this tip:


Here's an example of how I did this for our Lost Loan Letters:


<xsl:variable name='fine_fee_amount_total'>

<xsl:value-of select="sum(item_loans/overdue_and_lost_loan_notification_display/fines_fees_list/user_fines_fees/fine_fee_ammount/sum)"/>


<td colspan='6' style='font-weight:bold;text-align:right;'>Total: <xsl:value-of select="format-number($fine_fee_amount_total,'$#,##0.00')"/></td>



Additional Information

Customization of letters is done by the customers, and troubleshooting is done accordingly.

It is always possible to restore to out of the box letter.

Try to test on Sandbox first.
