Running Total

<p>I am developing a report where I use formulas to calculated database data and want to create a manual running total on that but for some reason it will not let me select or even show the formulas in the picklist to use for running totals. Even selecting the formulas and using the popup to select insert summary does not give me the option to use these fields to create a summary on.</p><p>Is there a catch here?</p>

    There are two passes of the data when running a report and something that you've put in the formula is forcing it to the second pass effectively. Only first pass formulas are available to be added to running totals and summaries. If you're doing a max or a sum or anythig like that, there would be your problem.Â
