Experts,

For some reason my reports group footer is not showing (see screenshot). I need to do some subtotals. How do I get the footer to show.

Thanks!

In the sorting/grouping options, set the group footer property to yes.

In Access 2007, you have to click the Group & Sort button on the Design tab of the Ribbon bar.  Then, you should see the Group, Sort, and Total options at the bottom of the page.  In the group you already have defined, click the arrow next to "More", then select "with a footer"

Under the DESIGN tab, click on Group & Sort button, then click on the group name you are working with at the bottom of the screen. You will see a drop down for "without a footer section". Click on the down arrow to the right of this and choose "with a footer section". You should now see a group footer section on your report.

In Access 2007 open the report in design view and click "Group and Sort" on the Design Tab.
Select the Group you want, then click "More".
Locate the "Without Footer Section" setting, and change it to "WITH Footer Section"
