On the below formula, I keep getting a message when trying to save it: "A field is required here" starting with CCur all the way to the end.

formula = Sum (CCur ({tblReport.gallons}))

Is that the full formula?

Try using Crystal syntax
CCur (Sum ({tblReport.gallons}))
or
Sum (CCur ({tblReport.gallons}))

That didn't work either. Is there any way I can upload a screen shot of the error message I'm getting?

I've tried this and it's not working. I click on the address link in Explorer and paste it into the Question textbox as well as the Comment and search for my desired file to u/l and it still doesn't work for me.

You can't use the report file directly.  You need to zip it or change the extension to say TXT.

This is getting ridiculous....did you see the error message? Can you respond to it in the forum as any other response? I'm kinda lost right now as to what any response may have been.

What data type is gallons?
Crystal thinks it is not numeric

Can you upload the report file itself?
