Report Totals

Here’s a really really simple question… showing off my ignorance.

Books on how to create reports tell me to create a ‘total’ value at the end, I need to set the property to TotalFields in a report footer but I can’t find this for the life of me.

Do I need a special type of footer, can someone explain this to me like I’m 3 years old please? Sorry to be a pain.

Hi ya…

Totalfields is a property of you dataitem (table name)…Right click this for the properties

Use this property to indicate the fields of a data item for which the system should maintain totals [:)]

The totals are printed by placing “field name” (e.g “Sales Line”.Qty) that have the fields that are indicated in TotalFields as their source expressions in a Footer Section.
