I am assuming you are using Crystal Reports.

Yes you can do your own running sum instead of using a running totals field.

Basically you have 3 formula fields.

Report header...initialise the variable

whileprintingrecords;
numbervar myrunningsum:=0;
""


Detail line...accumulate the sum

whileprintingrecords;
numbervar myrunningsum;
if <somecondition is true> then
myrunningsum:=myrunningsum + {table.field};
""

In the report foooter..print the value

whileprintingrecords;
numbervar myrunningsum;
myrunningsum


If you have a grouped structure you might want to modify this pattern to use group header and footer instead of report header and footer.
