I have a pivot table as the record source for a from. the data is Quarterly from 2011.

I want to add a total of the Qtrs for each year and thought I could do it on the form with an expression in a text box on the form but not working for me.

can the total be added to the record source?
TRANSFORM Sum(dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.PermitIssued) AS SumOfPermitIssued
SELECT dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.YearIssued
FROM dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly
GROUP BY dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.YearIssued
PIVOT dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.QTR;

Have that saved as one query (say, Query1), except you need to convert YearIssued to a string

TRANSFORM Sum(dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.PermitIssued) AS SumOfPermitIssued
SELECT str(dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.YearIssued) as YearIssued
FROM dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly
GROUP BY str(dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.YearIssued)
PIVOT dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.QTR;

Open in new window


Then have a second query - let's call that Query2

TRANSFORM Sum(dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.PermitIssued) AS SumOfPermitIssued
SELECT "Total" as Year Issued
FROM dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly
GROUP BY "Total"
PIVOT dw_ddai_parking_permit_productionmonthly.QTR;

Open in new window


and then Union them

SELECT Query1.*
FROM Query1

UNION ALL

SELECT Query2.*
FROM Query2

Thanks Philip, that adds up all the Qtrs and gives a Qtrly Total instead of a year total

Example
2011 Qtr3 + 2012 Qtr3 + 2013 Qtr3 + 2014 Qtr3

I want to add

2012 Qtr1 + 2012 Qtr2 + 2012 Qtr3 + 2012 Qtr4

Where do you want it? In a new row, or in a new column?

Then save what you have got as a query, and then start a new query and say:
[Qtrs] = [2011 Qtr3] + [2012 Qtr3] + [2013 Qtr3] + [2014 Qtr3]
or whatever the field names are.
