Balances.rptI want to do some basic math and put it in my report.  I created the formula and got to it work but I only want that field to be visible in a certain area and hide it in all the other places.  

Michael or James if you are out there....... I want to do some calculations to my Group 1 but I only want it to show in that particular section.  For instance I want to calculate my total sales and show that under INCOME but I don't want this to show under COST OF GOODS SOLD, SELLING EXPENSES, OTHER INCOME, etc.    I will then have a different calculation for each of those individually.  

Again, I'm trying to make this report similar to the Excel version I will attach.

You can have a formula on the report and conditionally suppress it based on a field name.

Put the INCOME formula on the report
Right click it
Click FORMAT FORMULA
CLick the COMMON tab
Click the formula buttonto the right of SUPPRESS
{GroupNameField} <> 'INCOME'

Similarly for the other formulas
