Hi,

Please check out this article

http://office.microsoft.com/en-nz/access-help/export-data-to-excel-HA001224122.aspx

In particular take note of the following comment in the Trouble shooting section

When you export a form, report, or datasheet, only the main form, report, or datasheet is exported. You must repeat the export operation for each subform, subreport, and subdatasheet that you want to export.

As Kelvin suggested, you cannot export Totals. In some cases, you can use various functions in the report's underlying query to provide those, but if you have Running Sum totals, you're out of luck with the standard Export features of Access.

You could create a custom routine to export the data to Excel, based on the Report's data and grouping - but that's a big task.

Or you could create the Export, and then use automation to open the new Excel file and add SUM formulas to the the worksheet ...
