I'm using QC 9.2 and i need a quick and painless solution for tracking defects status change. I know about the history, but what I'm really looking at is this:

Create a field that's uneditable (read only = true)
This field needs to populate with a cumulative count of:
"Status" field change from value x to value y.

This counter field needs to automatically update once any user changes the "status" field and updates the record.
Objective - as if it's not obvious [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] - is to keep track of particular values (defects are opened and reopened more than they should be).

I've found a similar thread:

but since I'm a new member and since my VB knowledge is somewhat limited, please advise if the above problem can be achieved any other way than a script, and if not, how would the script need to look like. Alternatively, where would I find more info on how to resolve this.

Thanks in advance,
