    Add total from main report and subreport to bottom of subreport page

    I created two reports from data from a music download store; one for albums and one for single tracks. Both reports have totals. I was asked to combine these into a single report showing a grand total at the end. (I've seen Q's regarding totalling subreports on the main report page but not this way round).

    I added the Single Track Report as a subreport to the Record Report using the Artist field to link them. This part worked beautifully giving me a page for each artist with data from the record report neatly followed by the tracks report with the totals in place after each list. All I need to do now is add to the end of the subreport (from the artistís point of view the final page of his statement) a Grand Total



    I created an unbound field and used the formula GrandTotal=Sum([ArtistRoyShareSong]+[ArtistRoyShareRecord]) Ė the total formulae from the two reports.

    This gives me a figure but itís incorrect and I canít see how it was arrived at. I tried some variations on the formula but these give errors or nothing at all. I guess I could go back and create a query which adds the two together and inserts them in the subreport but this seems klunky. If I have to tell the formula which report to reference in the formula I frankly donít know how.

    I feel sure thereís a relatively simple solution and would be grateful for help. Thanks Pieter
