delphyst,

use a query for it or make your detail also a master of another detail (=> this one calculates total of detail).

Use SQL,

something like this :

SELECT SUM(O.ItemsTotal), SUM(O.AmountPaid)
FROM ORDERS O

See example in Delphi 3\Demos\DB\CtrlGrid\CtrlGrid.dpr
procedure TDM1.CalculateTotals(Sender: TObject; Field: TField);

In short
    Detail.disableControls;  { hide this process from the user }
    Detail.first;
    while not Detail.eof do
    begin
      // calculate Totals
      Detail.next;
    end;
    Detail.first;
    Detail.enableControls;  { restore the display }

If you want only total ammount of detail item
use Detail.RecordCount
