It's either the join or the relationship of the data between the two queries.
Can you post your combined query along with some data showing the results you get and the results you want?

I can't post the query here sorry.. I am using a  0..n = 1.1  relationship between the two queries.

current output:

Received      320

Required output:

Received        275

If you use 0..n, it'll always pull more data.
Try 1..1 -- 1..1 in both side.

Then you have to play with aggregation properties for the numbers.
In each query, click on the data item and set 'None' in properties for Aggregate and rollup aggregate.
