I have many tables that I need to sums and avg of.
Here is the table that has a calculated field.

=ROUND(Fields!JHVolume.Value)*(Round(Fields!BartleyEngery.Value/Fields!BartleyVolume.Value,4))

This works and give the value I need

Now I need to do a sum and a avg. From this table.

Here is what I have tried.
=sum(Fields!JHVolume.Value, "DataSetTotal")*sum(Fields!BartleyEngery.Value/Fields!BartleyVolume.Value,"DataSetTotal")

It gives me a crazy total.
Any help?

You're multiplying the two sum together.  Are you sure that's what you want to do?  Also, you can use the AVG function to get the average.

Jester, yes here is the expression I used.

=sum(ROUND(Fields!JHVolume.Value, "DataSetTotal")*(Round(Fields!BartleyEngery.Value/Fields!BartleyVolume.Value,4, "DataSetTotal")))

and this is the error message.

[rsMissingAggregateScope] The Value expression for the textbox textbox28 uses an aggregate expression without a scope.  A scope is required for all aggregates used outside of a data region unless the report contains exactly one data set.

I don't think the SUM is necessary.  Does this work?

=ROUND(Fields!JHVolume.Value, "DataSetTotal")*(Round(Fields!BartleyEngery.Value/Fields!BartleyVolume.Value,4, "DataSetTotal"))

Greg, this is the error I get when I try that.

Oops, you have to explicitly convert the values like this:

=SUM(CDbl(Fields!JHVolume.Value), "DataSetTotal")*sum(CDbl(Fields!BartleyEngery.Value)/CDbl(Fields!BartleyVolume.Value),"DataSetTotal")

Looking at that expression, I don't see any reason that the sum would be doubled.  Are you sure that the data underneath the expression isn't doubled?  The average would still look the same, but the sum would be doubled.
