    Red face Unanswered: Help-Summary option button does not appear

    Hello!!
    I need to design a report [on access 2007] where it calculates the sum of a field on each group of data and its total at the end. So, I need the summary option button on the report wizard but it does not appear; even though the field is a numeric one(by byte)...

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Have you enabled the header and footer for the group in question?

    I've made two tables. One based on students' basic information and the other based on their points obtained during a sport day event! I've used both tables in the report wizard and grouped them on their HouseID [ as I need to determine the best house]! So, I need the summary option button to calculate the total marks for each and every house. BUT, this button does not appear at all..

    If you have a footer for the group in question, you can create a text box to hold the total for that group.

    I only have the footer for the report as a whole! I can only calculate the total of all the data but not for each specific group of data.

    How can I have the footer for the group in question?

    In the design of the report, click on the sorting and grouping button. You can then select fields with grouping, and set whether or not they have headers and footers.
