Hi Experts,

I have 2 Group Footers GF1 and GF2...I have a subtotal per each of these...Per detail line I have Various Dates...I need to summarize at the Report Footer the summary by Maximum of the MonthName of the Dates..

01/19/2014
01/14/2014
02/05/2014

I need to have the GF2 subtotal associated with the MonthName of 02/05/2014 and Show a Grand total of that value based on 'February'

Hopefully this makes sense

WHat are your groups?

How is the group total different from the value associated with the date?

Group 1 is a Salesperson
Group 2 is a SalesOrder

The Group 2 is not a date field...I currently have a summary on a date field to give me the Maximum(Date) and it resides on the GF2 line

Maybe the best solution is just to create a subreport based a group of The Max Podate

Do you need the details from the other dates?

Try this idea

Add a third group on the date field
You don't need to put anything in the group header or footer except a formula that calculates the group total and saves it in a variable.  You can then display the total (through the variable) in the next group footer

Are you trying to get a single total in the report footer for the latest date (Month?) on the report, or something else?

In the problem statement he needs it in GF2.

Actually, in the first part of his first post he says "I need to summarize at the Report Footer", and then near the end says "Show a Grand total".  So, I'm really not sure what he's looking for.
