Should be a simple question really...

I have a datatable in a c# app that has these columns:
GroupID
MemberID
MemberBalance
MemberWeight (need to calculate this) = MemberBalance / SUM(MemberBalance) Group by GroupID

Data looks like this:

Create another table with GroupID and SumMemberBalance columns.
Create two child-parent relations (one in each direction) between the two tables.
Set the second table's MemberBalance Expression property to Sum(Parent.MemberBalance)
You can then set the Expression of the MemberWeight of your table to MemberBalance/Parent.SumMemberBalance

Thanks Louis. This works. Is there a way to do this without having to create additional tables?

Not with a computed column, because there is no "group by" available. The other way is to do the work yourself, which means adding code to compute the column value each time you add, change or delete a row (e.g. using the RowChanged and RowDeleting events).

There was an error in my previous comment. You only need one relation, with the auxilliary table as parent, and the Expression would be "Sum(Child.MemberBalance)"
