I am using LO 3.6.4 in Mac OS X 10.8.2.

In Base I have a very simple, single table assets database.  In a report, I am trying to calculate 
a grand total for all records.

I have a text field for each record in the report which has a calculated amount for the record 
(i.e. in Report Detail there is a field called ItemTotalValue which is bound to a function which 
has the formula [quantity]*[price]).

The report runs and shows a value for ItemTotalValue for each record correctly.  What I want to do 
is get a grand total which in effect accumulates ItemTotalValue for the whole report.

I have successfully created a field which accumulates the price field (which is in the table) but, 
I can't figure out how to accumulate a field that is created in the report (i.e. it's not in the 
source table).

I have created a function at the Report level called "Calculate Grand Total Value" which has the 
formula [Calculate Grand Total Value]+[ItemTotalValue].  I then bound a text box in the report 
footer to "Calculate Grand Total Value".  But the report footer is a blank.  So, "Calculate Grand 
Total Value" seems to be empty.  I can't figure out how to get it working.


P.S.  I can't find any rules for posting to this list.  Can any one advise where the rules are ?
