I am in the process of creating an invoice that  gives a balance due - however all credits and charges must be summed together to give a balance due.
The issue I am running into is that for some reason the result  i am getting does not equal what  I am expecting.

sum ({bilingitem.amountdue}) where billing.item is a combination of records with values such as $200, $47.30, -$238

DO you have all the values in the one field?  Are there both positive and negative values?

MLMCC: I have the following scenraio on my invoice:

Code 7  -   Units 20 - Amount_Due - $140
Code 10 - Units 5 - Amount_Due - $100
Code 998 - Units 4 - Amount_Due ($80) * this is a credit amount
Total Due on Invoice - $160 (this would be a sum of Code 7 + Code 10 + Code 998)
In my Crystal report _ have a statement that says SUM({Amount_Due})

SPykair - I am trying to SUM (Money type fields) should I convert these to integers?

Is the Sum({MoneyField},{AccountId}) not working?

You can do it with formulas and variables.
