Hi,

I need to group something a certain way and just can't figure it out.  Here's what it's doing now:

Total apples sold monday = 30
Red = 15
Green = 15

Total apples sold Tuesday = 50
Red = 20
Green = 30
-----------------------------
I need it to do this:

Total apples sold monday = 30
Total apples sold Tuesday = 50

Red = 35
Green = 45

Thanks,
Joel

Depending on the data try this

I assume you have a formula that determines the apple color for the counts

Suppress the detail and group footers
Put summaries of the color counters in the report footer

That didn't seem to work.  Basically, I'm trying to get Group 2 (by department) to go right below Group 1 (by date).  Do you mind if I send you the file?  I'll attach it.  You'll see that my example was just an example and what I"m doing is more involved. COQ-For-Experts.rpt

Is your output flexible? If so, you might want to consider a couple of cross tabs. One cross tab giving totals by Date (grouped by Day if asked), and then a 2nd one giving totals by Color.

This does seem to really be a cross tab but it may not work well because the columns are all different.

Look at the attached report
Changes are in RED

Or building on Lin's idea

Look at the start of the cross tabs

In the report example posted on 09/26/11 06:33 PM, ID: 36656043  , I can't figure out how you got the column header in the cross tab to show the headers.  Can you help me?  Should I start a new post?

As stated in your other question, I put it in the DISPLAY STRING in the format object

You could just change the formula to have the same information
