Hi,

Place the controls in the report footer and subreport footer

=Sum(txtRegHrs])   <-Sub Report name control txtTotalSub

=Sum(txtRegHrs])  + [subrptTimeCardDataEntryCostCtrsGrp3Payroll].report!txtTotalSub  <-Main Report  name control txtTotalMain

note that [subrptTimeCardDataEntryCostCtrsGrp3Payroll] is the name of the control holding the subreport not the name of the subreport although they can be the same.

regards,

Bill

Since a subreport can have multiple rows, exactly which row did you want to reference?

What I would do is create a totals query that sums to the level I need.  Then since this is a report, I can change my RecordSource query to join to the totals query which will let me bind a column to the total.  Then my expression would be

=Nz(txtRegHrs,0) + Nz(SumRegHrs,0)

I'm trying to reference this in the field in the footer of the main report...

txtGroupRegHrsTotal

and in the subreport I'm trying to reference this in the footer of the sub-report...

txtCostCtrGroupRegHrsTotal

Here is what I have but still not working.

=Sum([txtGroupRegHrsTotal]+[subrptTimeCardDataEntryCostCtrsGrp3Payroll].[Report]![txtCostCtrGroupRegHrsTotal])
