I assume you mean the difference between the value of a field in the first record and the same field in the last record.

Try this idea.  I assume it is a numeric field?
In the report header add a formula
Name - GetFirstValue
WhilePrintingRecords;
GLobal NumberVar FirstRecordValue := {YourFIeld};

In the report footer
WhilePrintingRecords;
GLobal NumberVar FirstRecordValue;
FirstRecordValue - {YourFIeld}

If you mean between the whole records then you would need to use a variable for each field and do the appropriate comparison in the report footer

Formulas are created the smae way regadless where they are being used.

just create 2 formula, first
Name - GetFirstValue
WhilePrintingRecords;
GLobal NumberVar FirstRecordValue := {YourFIeld};
 then
 second
WhilePrintingRecords;
GLobal NumberVar FirstRecordValue;
FirstRecordValue - {YourFIeld}


Now just drag your first formula and drop it in the header and the second formula in the footer...

How to create a formula?
 on your report field, left or right depends.. you should see formula in the tree...right click and choose new formula

If you have a screen shot of your design view that would be great. or just attach your report and change the extension to .doc

You can add a "second" report header section (if that is what you mean) by right clicking the report header in the left margin and clicking INSERT SECTION BELOW
