    I really have never used Access and need to do something really simple
    in the quickest way therefore posting here.

    I have a table with the following fields:
    Name (text)
    Count (just a number)

    I want to create a simple report that lists each name with a sum of the
    count field. In the report, how do I add the field to quickly total the
    count?

    For example,
    table
    John Doe 10
    Sue Smith 5
    John Doe 3
    John Doe 2
    Kim Jones 1


    report
    John Doe 10
    3
    2
    Sum 15

    Sue Smith 5

    Kim Jones 1

    Open your report in design view. On the menu click on VIEW - Sorting and
    Grouping. This opens another window. Click in the Field/Expresion grid and
    select your name field. Then in the lower grid change Group Footer to Yes.
    Close the Sorting and Grouping window.

    In the group footer add a textbox with =Sum([YourValueField])
