Automatically aggregating / summarizing from one list into another

Copper Contributor

I want to aggregate / summarize information from one SPO list into another (without using a flow, Powerapp etc.).


For example, I have a list of payments, which includes a column called PaymentID, and I want to create a summary list which will automatically display the maximum PaymentID that currently exists in the list of payments. Then, when a new payment gets added, with a PaymentID that is 1 greater than the previous payment, the summary list should automatically display the new maximum PaymentID.


Does anyone know of a simple way of doing this?


Thanks for any suggestions.

@AndrewCrompton This is not possible using SharePoint out of the box capabilities.


You will need custom solution using either using Power Apps, Power automate or SPFx customized list forms.

Hi, Ganesh,

Thanks for your reply. I'm not too surprised that SPO does not allow this. I guess I'll have to make do with a PowerApps solution.

Kind regards,
