Sum multiple values in an Access 2010 Report

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.

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.

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