See the attached file.

In Group Header #2, the formula in blue calculates a number based on the request date and completion date of a service order.  If the complete date is > 1/1/1900, it calculates the days.

I have five running total formulas, in red, that count based on aging (<0 days, 0-7 days, 8-14 days, etc.)

I would like a summarized count of the red running totals by service contact (Group Footer #1) and also a grand total count in the report footer.  (I have multiple service contacts.  This version is filtering by a single service contact for clarity).

What do I need to do to sum the running totals in a group header and display the totals?

Running totals are calculated as the report runs so the total for the group isn't available until the group footer.  If you need them in the group header you will need to create formulas for the day ranges you want as

I modified your report to calculate using formulas and summaries.

Your solution did not give me the results I was looking for, but your comment about running totals not calculating until the report runs pointed me in the right direction.  I modified where I was displaying values and created a new series of running totals in GF#1 and Report Footer.  The summaries are now accurate.

Thanks
