Add Text Box with Sum Function to Report

I am trying to add a text box with a SUM function to provide totals at the bottom of a report. The function I am using is below:

=Sum([SummarybyChannelType-LessThan60.SumofAssetCost])

SummarybyChannelType-LessThan60 is a Query
SumofAssetCost is a field derived in that query

When I added it to my report a view it, the text box displays "#ERROR

Sum function on report not working

Why is the average in my report footer giving the wrong calculation?
I have a report that totals up the daily efficiency for each employee. Then, in the report footer I made a text box that will average those daily efficiencies. However, when I manually type these numbers into a calculator I do not get the right average. For example on employee has the following daily efficiencies: 62.23, 131.37, 129.29, 126.53, 126.53, and 141.42. When I manually average those I get 119.56. However, my report average shows 128.55. I figured out that I have to include the sum inside the formula in my text box, but when I do that I keep getting error messages. This is the formula that I am using:

=Avg(((([Sum Qty]*[Rate])*(0.125))/[Sum Hrs])/[Employee Data_Rate])

When I run the report I get a box that tells me to enter the parameter value for Sum Qty and Sum Hrs. These two are calculated text boxes that gets the sum of the Qty and the Hrs. I realize that you can't use these with the Avg function but I don't know any other way to do it. I tried putting the Sum function inside the above formula but got an error message as well. What would be the best way to to get my report footer to show the proper average of these numbers?


Calculating overtime in report footer
I currently use the following formula in a text box in the employee footer on my report to calculate the amount paid to each employee is paid:

=([On Std Hours Sum] [Off Std Hours Sum] IIf([On Std Hours Sum] [Off Std
Hours Sum]40,0.5*([On Std Hours Sum] [On Std Hours Sum]-40),0))*[Current Pay Rate]

I should note that the [On Std Hours Sum] and [Off Std Hours Sum] are both sums (if you didn't already catch that!) Now, I need a sum of that formula in the report footer but as you know you can't sum a sum. I attempted to use the totals function inside the query that I have based this report on to sum the On and Off Std Hours but it only shows the last entry for each employee. Any ideas on how I can sum the above code properly?


Summing Totals from SubReports
I have a subreport in the details section, it works fine.

I have a text box in the detail section of the main report with the control source set to the subtotal located in subreport report footer.

=[Invoice].[Report]![txtSubtotal]

This works fine.

When I try to sum txtDetailTotal in the report header or footer I am queried for the value of txtDetailTotal and no value is displayed.

My guess is that the sub form is not calculated prior to the main report sum function.

As a work around I'm going to add a sum of the details to the main report and see if it works


Report Assistance Requested
I have an issue where to put the Nz indicator to the following calculation in an access report.

=IIf(Sum([Expr1])>Sum([Expr2]),(Sum([Expr1])-Sum([Expr2])))

This is part of an text box calculating as part of a footer.

After solving this I may need to extend this question into summing a text box later. We'll see.


Adding field values in report
I have a report in which I would like to sum the values of multiples fields into an unbound text box. These fields are all in the same table which is the record source of the report. I tried to use the SUM function, but it looks like that is mostly for SQL. I used the syntax

=[field1]+[field2]+[field3]+[field4]

which doesn't seem to work either. Any way I type it, no value shows at all.

text box - sum of a b & c
I want to have a text box on my form that is the sum of box a, box b, box c & box d.

I know how to do it in thing like excel but I dont know how to do it in access. in excel it would be =sum(a+b+c+d)

and this will update in realtime. I have tried this in the default and control source in the text box properties but it does not seem to work. it seems to know the expression =sum() but as I enter values into the a b c & d boxes it dosnt update.


Sum IIF Function
I am trying to write a query that will sum an item with 2 criterias. I have a database that has a table called tblIssues with columns that have IssueType and FBCS. IssueType is a combo box with 3 choices, 1=true Pres, 2= Verbal, 3= CRL. The FBCS column is a Yes/No box. I need to sum the number of TruePres (1) issues that are tagged FBCS (yes). I can sum the True pres issues like this:

TruePres: Sum(IIF([tbleIssues].[IssueType]=1,1,0))

But when I add the 2nd Criteria (the FBCS part) I get errors. Any suggestions on how I can add this 2nd criteria to sum. I know I can create more queries and then add them together, but would like to simplify this

#Error in reports
I have a report that's giving me #Error. I have three text boxes on the report.

1)Text box Totals from System CL |
2)Text box Totals from System CT |
3)Text box Sum of System CL and System CT |

If there is an amount for text box 1 and text box 2 it would give me a total for text box 3. Now if text box one or two is missing an, amount text box three would gave me #Error.

Text box One $300
Text box Two $0.00
Text box three#Error |


Summing values in report view
I need the syntax to sum the numbers indicated in the attachment in report view. Just adding a sum function like =sum([Fee]) does not come up with the correct total because the fees are not stored for each record.

They come from a separate table that was created to calculate the fees based on the user module and some other criteria.

I know there is a way to sum a group of numbers when the report is in report view, I just don't know what it is.


How to get a Function value Summed?
Forum, I have a Continuous report where one control held the value of a loan from the data source query.
I replaced that with a function to supply the value.

Now the =Sum([controlname]) fails.

Is this an issue with using functions to supply the data? could it be that the report opens before the function has entered the values hence there is nothing to Sum


A report with multiple sums
I am using access 2007

I have created a report which is pulled from a query. The report shows me the date, the piece of equipment and how many hours the equipment has been used per day. Also the report is based on a date range.

So when I click on the report and window pops up asking me what year do I want to run and then another pops up asking what month.once boh answered my report pops up on thescreen.

Now one piece of equipment can be used on multiple days, which my report shows me. I have a page header which has all the headers I picked in the wizard.then a sub header which is the nameof the equipment.then below that is the detail.

For example I just ran the report for Feb 2012 and I have equipment number 50sb209 then all the days and hours it was used

I put in a border to separate between the equipment results.so below the border is the next piece of equipment 56os456 and the days and hours it was used.

What I'm trying to do now is sum up the total hours for each piece of equipment AND also the number of days. I created two text boxes in the detail section and put them under "Sum of Hours" header and "Date" header.

In the text box under "Sum of Hours" I put this formula in the control source: =Sum([Sum of Hours])

when I ran the report it summed up ALL the hours on the report and put a text box under each individual line item with this total sum.

So it did not work out how it planned. I was expecting to see a text box under each equipment number section with the total hours for that individual piece of equipment.


Executing a query that does not include the specified expression...
I originally thought this problem was with my report so I posted it under the reports section but not I'm seeing that it is a query problem so I am re- posting it here. I ran in to some problems while trying to do a sum in my report footer but had problems because I was trying to do a Sum of a Sum. So, I created an expression in the query that my report is based on to do the Sum for me. However, when I add the totals option to the query and select sum underneath the On and Off Std Hours, it doesn't sum it up for me in the report. It just shows the last entry. So, I tried to manually create it by placing the following in a new field:


Sums in Detail area of report
In a report I am using the underlying query to calculate extended row totals for 2 different values, Value A and Value B. Each are calculated in the query by CostA*Qty or Cost B*Qty and these work just fine. They also relate in the query to a group, like Group 1 or Group 2.

Then in the report detail area, Group 1 the sum of the CostA*Qty and sum of CostB*Qty work also (text boxes) - BUT I then sum the A total sum and the B total sum into a sub-grand total(text box, again in the detail area) - which works fine unless there is no data in one of the A or B sums.

Example: Sum A = $1,000, Sum B = $200, Sub Grand Total = $1,200 but if
Sum A = $1,000 and Sum B = blank, Sub Grand Total = blank too.


Sum of records in a text box
I have a text box which shows the sum of numbers for today - the text box is located in a form which is based on a query.

I want a pop up message to appear if the sum of records is zero (meaning no entries were added). My code works for a simple (empty) text box, but doesn't work if I use =SUM([Source]) as the control source of the text box. Here is the code im using:

If IsNull(Me.Text2) Then
MsgBox ("No records have been added today!")
End If


Also, what's the difference between using Me.text2 and Me![Text2]


Calculated Fields in a Report
I am trying to add a sum on a report. It is a report with six columns, aging report: 0-30, 31-60,61-90,91-120, 121+ Open Invoice Amount.

=Sum([Open Invoice Amount]) is adding correctly. I am adding the rest of the buckets, =Sum([121+ Days]), =Sum([91-120 Days]), =Sum([61-90 Days)], =Sum([31-60 Days]), =Sum([0-30 Days]) but I get this error:

"This expression is typed incorrectly, or it is too complex to be evaluated."
