Report Sub-Count and Total Count

I have a report broken into Categories. What I require is a sub-count for each category and a report total combining all the sub-totals.  I'm using Access 7, and currently use "=count(*)" in the report footer, but I can't firgure out the sub-totals? Sometimes I see the formula on the actual report?  Also my total for my invoice only shows the cost of the last item in the list vice a combined total for all the items?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In the category group footer simply create an unbound text box and put the following in the controlsource property:

=sum([fieldname])

where fieldname is the name of the field you want to total - for example [amount]

Repeat this exact same thing in the Report Footer for a grand total.

Good luck
