Hi.  Users are running a report that has worked for years and is now issuing an error on request: This expression is typed incorrectly or it is too complex to be evaluated....   I traced it back to the report itself.  In my report footer I created a calculated field and am summarizing a detail column total.  My expression is =Sum([RGAQtyReq]).  
Is there a better way to format this expression?  thanks

Either there is some bad data in the table or the report has become corrupted.  If all the users are getting the error (and you haven't just pushed out a new copy of the FE), then I would examine the data.  Try a compact and repair on the BE and then again on each copy of the FE.  You might also run the /Decompile on the FE and distribute a new copy of the FE.
