I don't believe you can get that data. You'd have to instead create your own Sums in code, either by using a Recordset or by using one of the Domain Aggregate methods (like DSum).

I found the properties in VBA but I am not sure how to change them.
in the Recordset.properities(38) = TotalsRow (true or False)
in the Recordset.Fields(0).Properties(27) = AggregateType
   using 0 = sum
currently Read only..
Does anyone know how to set the properties of a form's query. on open or on current event.

I don't have a clue, but you can't do much with the attributes ... all that does is tell you the capabilities of the object (in this case, your recordset).

Perhaps others might have better insight ...

Ok I figured it out.. you can use
in design mode of the form.
me.formname.form.recordset.properties("Totalrow") = True
for this part open the form in design mode and enable the total row using the method msdn and microsoft says to do.

now if you want to set the aggreation at run time. you can.
on form open event..
me.controls("fieldname").Properties("AggregateType") = 0 gives you Sum
but you can use -1 to turn it off.
1 give you the next one in the list.
any got this to open a form and apply sum to the fields that I wanted it to be applied.

ahf50,

Were you able to determine how to reference the value in those columns of that Totals row?
