What should the result be?

How are the sums being done?

What is the group?
Are you grouping by day?

above is what the result should be.
this is one user and by there userid displays the amount according to the day and month

I am grouping by day but when I add the amount it only sums the last month shown for example

date        amount         result
10/11         50                 50
10/12          20                70

40                180
10/19          10                  190

so the result for example suppose to be 220 it comes out 190

If I can get the same result to add each amount line but do not show the group like the example
Do not want below**
date        amount         result
10/11         50                 50
10/12          20                70
10/15          10                 90
10/15           9                    99
10/15            5                    104
10/15           40                134
10/19          10                 144
Do want below

date        amount         result
10/11         50                 50
10/12
10/15           40                134
10/19          10                 144

Here let me explain it since it doesn't make since.

The amount will total in the results but they will be grouped together using the date. So if its the same date it will only show once. why giving the correct total result on each line.

If you put the totals in the group footer, they will appear only once per group.

If you want the details to show for the group then put the field in the detail section.

I did add it in the group and vice versa, but this does not give me a sub total of the amount in Details and it does not separate it when i group it together in the group section. If i add it in the group section then it only gives me the last line subtotal of that group. If I add it to details then it shows everything and does not  separate it like it does in group.

Let me know if you follow.

Click FORMAT OBJECT
Click the COMMON TAB
Click the formula button to the right of suppress
Enter the following
