    It seems like this should be simple but I can't get it or find the answer.
    I have a report based on a query that displays dollar amounts from a table .
    The field name for the dollar amounts is amounts.
    I would like to total the dollar amounts at the bottom of the report. It
    seems like =sum([amount]) should work but I keep getting the "#error".
    Thank you for your help.

    H2OBOWL,

    Is this a typo in your post, or in yor report. You said the name of the
    field is amounts with an 's' but the expression has no 's'. Try
    =Sum([Amounts])
    You have this in the Report Footer section, right?
    The other thing to check is that the name of the textbox which you are
    using for this total expression is not named 'amounts', or in fact not
    named the same as any field in the report's record source.

    Thanks. The report footer was hidden. I was working in the page footer
    section.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
