    Unanswered: Sum of Grouped Data

    I have a report which groups data by line number. Within the line, I have textboxes which are performing SUM functions on the data from the query.

    I have selected line 1-5 and the system displays exactly what I want, but I would like to take it a step further.

    At the end of the report, I would like a COMPLETE sum of all the data displayed by the report. So the sum of line 1 + sum of line 2...... line 5.

    Simple Graphical Representation as follows:

    (note: total = ([bottles]+[caps]))

    Line 1:

    Bottles: 50 Caps: 55 Total: 105

    Line 2:

    Bottles: 50 Caps: 50 Total: 100

    Line 3:

    Bottles: 25 Caps: 25 Total: 50

    (What I am looking for

    Bottles: 125 Caps: 130 Total 2: 255

    Could you please help?

    I think this is possible using a sub report. You would need to write another query soemthing like count sected items on qryselectItems.

    You could then use the new query as the recordsource for a sub report and place that in the main report.

    This should give you the desired outcome.

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for (or if it will even work) but have you tried creating a text box with the following function in it:


    Place it in the report footer and it should total all Bottle Caps. Hope that helps.
