I need to do a basic sum if in Access and I can't figure out how to do it.

I would like to sum [TimeSpent] if PresenterStatusID=1
sum [TimeSpent] if PresenterStatusID=2
sum [TimeSpent] if PresenterStatusID=3
I am just putting them in seperate fields in the report footer
How do I get that to work in a report?

Thanks

I think I have figured it out, but essentially what I need to know is if the presenter status is 1 (staff), how much time did then spend and If presenter status 2 (Volunteer) sum thier time seperately and so on. I was tring to do this in a footer, but there is no such thing as a SumIf statement that I know of so instead I am doing seperate if's in the details and then will sum in the footer.

Do you know of a more efficent way to handle this? It seems so basic.

"SumIf"

Well, you can do things like this:

=Sum(IIF([FooBar]="Jenn", 1,0) )

so ... each time the field FooBar = "Jenn", it adds 1 to the sum.

Does that help?

btw ... when are you gonna upgrade to a Premium Membership ... ?
