DSum In Report Based On Parameter Query

    I have a simple monthly accounting report which is based on a query,
    which in turn is based on a parameter query. In the report footer I am
    trying to use the DSun function to sum up the values in one field, but
    I keep getting an error. I did a little reading and found that you
    cannot use the DSun fnction in a report based on a parameter query. I
    know however that at some of you gurus out there have found a way
    around this obsticle. Please be so kind as to share the benefits of
    your knowledge and exerience with this lowly novice.

    Charles,

    The function is DSum not DSun (which as I recall was the name of a
    song). Are you sure the error you got is not the result of misspelling?

    I have never based a report on a parameter query, so I am not aware of
    other problems. I would recommend you do the same.

    In any case, do you mean to get the sum of a field that is included in
    the report? In this case, I think an unbound textbox in the Footer
    section, with its Control Source set to =Sum([NameOfYourField]) should
    do it, unless I have misunderstood.
