David,

Sorry I misunderstood your problem, I thought you were getting the total of all rows and wanted just the total for the filtered rows. Yes, what you are doing should work, but I would recommend pushing that down to the query by adding a column doing a sum(totalturnover) over() which returns the sum of all the rows in the results. Then in the total row on the report you'd use first(totalturnover) instead of sum. I'd do that because I find it easier to understand and maintain than hiding textbox and then referencing it in anther object in the report. Both work so it really comes down to personal preference.

No problem, it doesn't help when it's not a 'logical' request!

It's a work around up to a point, but by definition it's per page. I've made the pages as large as possible but if the report continues onto a second then the values are not the true totals. As it stands it's unlikely to be a multi-page report but should that arise I'll revisit the problem.

Once again thank you for your input.
