Experts, I have the following SQL in a report.  I am wanting to suppress the details  [Total Incoming] and [Total Expenses] and only show the sum on [Total Incoming] and [Total Expenses].  Its an import from Excel.   I am not sure how to do this in the report.

SELECT Import_FC_Archive.[Total Incoming], Import_FC_Archive.[Total Expenses], Import_FC_Archive.Date_Append, Import_FC_Archive.Date, Format([Date_Append],"mmmm yyyy") AS YearMonGroup FROM Import_FC_Archive;

I have attached a sample db.

grateful for your help

you can define a calculated field:
   SELECT nz(Import_FC_Archive.[Total Incoming]) + nz(Import_FC_Archive.[Total Expenses],0) as MyCalculatedFieldname, etc

Open in new window

WHERE MyCalculatedFieldname is whatever you want to call the calculated field. If you use spaces or special characters, MyCalculatedFieldname must be surrounded with [square brackets]

Go to design view of the report:

Select Detail section Properties, Format.
Set property Visible: No
Save report.

That's it.
