Experts,

I have a calculated field in the control source of a report:
USD Equivalent: IIf([tblCurrencyExchange].[CurrencyID]=1,"",Format(([tblFXRates]![Amount]*[tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate]),"Currency"))


I need to sum this USD Equivalent but for each [projects].[ID]
I have an idea how to do it but something is not correct.  
I can not sum it on the report face (doesnt allow since it is calculated)...need to sum in the query design window.

thank you...let me know if you need additional info.

Use the Report Grouping option to Group on [projects].[id] then sum your field in the footer for the group.

Try grouping your report by projects.ID.  Place a textbox in the group header or footer section, and set it's control source to:

 = Format( SUM( ABS([tblCurrencyExchange].[CurrencyID]=1) * [tblFXRates]![Amount]*[tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate]), "Currency")

Open in new window

Or possibly this, and do the formatting through the textbox properties instead of in the expression:

 = SUM( ABS([tblCurrencyExchange].[CurrencyID]=1) * [tblFXRates]![Amount]*[tblCurrencyExchange]![ExchangeRate])
