I am trying to use the QuickReport TQRExpr Component, to sum a Calculated field column in my dataset on my report.

I have a "Qty" field and a "Price" field, which is multiplied and stored in a calculated field "TotalPrice", using the table's OnCalcField event.

I now want to sum all those TotalPrice's into a GrandTotal using the TQRExpr.

Anybody know what I need. I tried using the expression


however, it seems it is only summing the first record .

Kretzschmar -  I do not know how to use the groupband and group footer.

I have the following bands in order:
 PageHeader (Company Logo & Address)
 Title (Report Title)
 ColumnHeader (Field Descriptions)
 Detail (Master Table)
 SunDetail (Child Table)
 Summary   (Company Shipping Information)
 PageFooter (Page Numbering)

At the top of the Summary band is where I currently have the TQRExpr component.

ESOFTBG - I have tried your suggestions , SUM(Options.TotalPrice) AND SUM(Options.QTY * Options.Price)  , and I get nothing in return.

Oh well.... because of a Time Constraint, I used a Query

 Select SUM(Qty * Price) as TotalPrice from Options

Which works

Im giving ESOFTBG the points beause his suggestion action pointed me towards the SUM(Options.QTY * Options.Price)  which ultimately led me to my Query indirectly.
