report summary



I have a text field named "dollars" in the detail section in the report, in
the group footer section if I just set up a text from the "dollars" like
"=[dollars]", then it can show me the value in the group footer section, if I
need to get a sum and put it like "=Sum([dollars])", then when I run the
report, it looks like it doesn't recognize the "dollars" and asks me to enter
the value of the dollars each time, and after I entered the dollars each
time, it only calculates the summary of the value I entered in the group
footer section, why?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.




Use this if you do not precede the value with a dollar symbol --
IIf([Dollars] Is Null,0,Val([Dollars]))
