Summary Report not providing total

  • 1.  Summary Report not providing total

    Posted 28 days ago
    I think this might be the problem:  I am using fields with a formula - All of the REV. fields are formula fields.  They are totaling correctly.  However, the "TOTAL FOR CK DATE" field is not totaling.  The formula in that field adds all of the REV. fields.
    Table
    Please advise.  Thank you

    Typically that will happen if the formula  for any of your REV fields allows any of the resulting calculations to calculate to null (blank).  So the proper fix is to adjust those calculated fields to calculate to zero as a last resort in the IF statement.  This can also happen if these [Rev...] fields depend on summary fields where you have not set the "Treat blank as zero" to checked.

    The untidy way (imho) is to do this in your [TOTAL FOR CK DATE]

    Nz([Rev field 1]) + Nz([Rev field 2]) ...... + Nz([Rev field last])

    The Nz() function tells the system to use zero if the value is null (blank).  I try to avoid cluttering up the whole app with Nz()s in the formuals preferring to fix them properly at the source.

    Did you double check your field type to make certain it is numeric? No typos in your formula? I have accidentally selected a formula field of text type when I meant numeric before.
