I have a field for name, balance, a payment date and a payment amount.  In a report I would like to group by name and at the end of that grouping - get the balance.  So if Smith had a balace of 100.00 and made a payment on 10-08-98 for 10.00 and a payment on 10-09-98 for 10.00 then I would a space for it to say current balace of $80.00.  Make sense?

Sum() is the function you use at the group footer.  You could use the Expression Builder to create your Control Source property.  You can lookup more about this function by using the help file and search for 'SQL aggregate functions'.

Good Luck,
Martin

Yes it makes sense

You should create a header an  footer on name. In the header you place the name and total payment , in the detail you place payment date and amount and in the footer you place a field with a controlsource :

=reports!Myreport!total_payment-sum(reports!myreport!paidAmount)
