I'm trying to show the following report in reporting services

The percentage field is percentage by contract/grade.

How do I have to do my grouping inorder to get that percentage field correct?

Contract A   SubContract B   Grade 1   10   10%
Contract A   SubContract C   Grade 2   40
Contract A   SubContract D   Grade 2   30   70%
Contract A   SubContract A   Grade 3   20   20%
Total Volume                                         100

Contract B   SubContract A  Grade 1   20   100%

Group by Contract in the underlying record source:

Select Contract, SubContract, Grade, yourtable.Quantity, yourtable.Quantity/ContractView.Quantity*100 AS Percentage
FROM yourtable
INNER JOIN
--this is the group by contract
(Select Contract, Sum(Quantity) Quantity from yourtable Group by Contract) AS ContractView  
ON  ContractView.Contract = yourtable.contract

Basically what I have right now is a grouping for contract and a grouping for grade.

So in my grade grouping, I need to access the total in the contract so I can do grade total / contract total to get my percentage.

But I can't seem to figure out the right thing to put in there??

nevermind.  i figured out how to do it.  for anyone else trying to do something similar:

=Sum(Fields!volumeamount.Value,"GradeGroup") / Sum(Fields!volumeamount.Value, "ContractGroup")

You have to put the name of your group in quotes in your sum function so it knows where you are trying to take the sum from.
