A formula can be added to the detail section as well as group header section.
For that, you need to create your formula using the field explorer, then drag and drop into the group header  section.

Be aware that summary functions are more suitable in group headers, as you will deal with a set of records rather than individual records.

There's really nothing to putting a formula in a group header - Just drag and drop.  The real question is, what do you need the formula to do?
