Access 2010 Report is pulling data from a query, all info is correct and fields are summed up as required, except for a grand total, I have tried;

=Sum[Column A]+[Column B]+[Column C] but nothing happens, I have recreated jist of the report in an Excel Attachment.

***Keep in mind my report is in Access 2010...NOT In Excel!!!

Your help is very much appreciated,

Lucy

This needs to be in the footer of your report.

=sum([column a]) + sum([column b]) + sum([column c])

Also make sure that these are the names of fields in your query, not the names of textboxes on your report.

Hi matthewpatrick, this goes in the Control Source field right? I tried it and it's not adding up...any ideas as to why?

Thanks,

Lucy

matthewpatric, I did make sure the field names matched the query, and moved to the footer of the report, I'm getting a #ERROR.

After I revised the column names I found a mistake, corrected it, as matthepatrick suggested and it worked perfect.

Thank you very much,

Any particular reason, then, why I got none of the points?
