Grand total doesn't render to pdf when using Code for the total

We have a report that requires grand totals.  Because some of the values in the grouping lines are just the first value of that field we can't use the normal sum to get a grand total.  We've used Code to get the total.  When the report runs, the total shows on the screen properly.  But when you save it as a pdf or print it the totals created using Code do not display.  What is the work around for this?

here is the code that is used and then below that is how the code is used in the detail line and in the total line (where it isn't working).  BTW I have since taken this report into excel and the totals that display on the report  (from the code) are way off from the totals when done in excel.  


Public Dim FVTotal as Double = 0
Public Dim ABTotal as Double = 0

Public Function AddFVTotal (Amt as Double) as Double
      FVTotal = FVTotal + Amt
      AddFVTotal = 0
End Function

Public Function GetFVTotal as Double
      GetFVTotal = FVTotal
End Function

Public Function AddABTotal (Amt as Double) as Double
      ABTotal = ABTotal + Amt
      AddABTotal = 0
End Function

Public Function GetABTotal as Double
      GetABTotal = ABTotal
End Function

--------
detail line:   =First(Fields!NPV.Value)+Code.AddFVTotal(First(Fields!NPV.Value))

final total:   =Code.GetFVTotal()

Ignore the comment about excel totals not equaling -  I know why that is and I can't just take a summary of the total.  Mostly I have to figure out how to get the totals to render to pdf's and excel and/or find an alternative way of creating totals.

BTW I tried creating a page footer and put the totals in there... it is doing something similar.  On the report on screen, the totals are fine but if you save it as a pdf (which we do often) the totals are completely different from what shows on the screen.  Its maddening - our CFO uses this report for so many things but she always wants it in a pdf.

How are you grouping  the items? By a line number? A group type?

A group - we have gifts that come in and each gift goes toward a certain fund.  I'm grouping on that fund.

Here is a sample that I use in some reports
Change the ItemCode to your Funds field....

SUMMING A GROUP INSIDE A GROUP
Public Dim ToT as Double
Public Function TotalItems(Byval value as Double, ByVal Reset as Boolean) as Double
       ToT += value
       If Reset = TRUE Then
          ToT = value
       End If
      Return TOT
End Function
=Code.TotalItems(Fields!PlanDetailQuantity.Value, IIF(Fields!ItemCode.Value <> Previous(Fields!ItemCode.Value),True,False))

IF this does not work for you , let me know  I do have other codes.

Do you know if this renders ok?  The code does do the correct totals - the problem only shows up when I render it as a pdf or excel file.  Then the totals are either 0 or wrong.

All the SSRS reports that I work with are exported to PDF files.
