I can't see why not.
Upload a sample database with few records, and show how do you want the output.
Include any other info on how do you want to use it. For example, do you want to insert new records and show the total?

How are you doing the sum (DSum expression, Totals query, or ??)

Sorry for my late reply.  

I attached a pic of the form.  I am looking to sum [FX USD Equiv] but the sum should be at the bottom on the new record line.   Its a calculated field.  

thank you.

Create a sample database showing the issue.
Show a picture of the output.
Do you want it to allow for editing?

If you look at the picture all I need is a sum of [FX USD Equiv] but would like it at the bottom much like you would sum in excel.  I know I have seen this option in other can click the new record row, under that column, and you would see a "sum" option to sum for that column.  Do you know what I am talking about?

sorry my late reply.  I had to set aside enough time and figure out how I got the Sum button to appear as the last row (see pic).  My form was in split datasheet with records at the bottom.  I had to first open in datasheet and then hit the sum button (Home<Records).  I now have the records summed as it would be in excel.
