Crystal Reports 2008 - Subtotal the Sum of an Average

bruno71 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a report for machine downtime in our company.  On the details line is a database field with an integer for # of minutes.  My Group # 3 is by Shift.  Group # 2 is by Date. Group # 1 is by Machine.

So far, I can insert a summary into Group # 3 Footer to get an Average of the # minutes for the Shift.  Now I want to add those averages together for each Shift to get a sum total number of minutes for the Date.  And then I will add up the daily totals for a total number of minutes for each machine.  And then a grand total for the report.  However, I can't seem to create a sum total of the average.  It will only let me summarize the original database field.

Here is an example of what I'm looking for...

Detail - 480
Detail - 510
Detail - 480
GF3 -  Shift 1 - 490
Detail - 480
Detail - 480
Detail - 480
GF3 - Shift 2 - 480
GF2 - 6/9/10 - 970
GF2 - 6/10/10 - 985
GF1 - Machine # 3 - 1955
Report Footer - Grand Total - 6250

How can I trick CR2008 into giving me a total of an average?
