    Unanswered: Creating totals on a form based on a sub-form?

    Hi there,

    I have a sub-form called frmLegalAidLedger on a form called profile, the sub-form has a field called Category.
    I have a report which separates all the categories and then gives a total, however i need something which just gives you a total for each category which is already on the sub-form.

    Just some extra info: The sub-form is in a Continuous View. There a five different categories. The calculation for the total is based on 2 fields.

    Can anyone help? if you need more details please ask.

    Thanks in advance.

    That will not work as the total in the sub-form is a total of all the categories, what i need is a total for each sub-cateogory.

    Any thoughts|
