Simple SUM

Post Author: oscar.ocazionez

CA Forum: Formula

Hi All,

I'm working on CR XI and have the following issue. I need to sum a calculated field by gruop, but I can't do it with running total because the field is not a Database field, it's a formula field. I need to sum this field for each group and place it in group footer. I hope you can help me. Thanks a lot 😊

(If I was not clear I can upload an image to explain in a better way)

    Who told you that you can't use Running Totals to sum formulas? I do it all the time. The only limitation is that it can't be a summary type of formula of a NEXT ofr PREVIOUS or anything that uses multiple records.

    Hi. My report has 3 groups. Lets say I have a field called @ValueX (formula field), it's numeric and is placed in group 2 footer. I want to summarize it and put the result in group 1 footer. I can't use Running Totals because that field doesn't even appear to select it.Thanks for your time!
