In a Microsoft Access report, you can sum a column of numbers by group or over the entire report, but there is no built-in way to print the sum of a column on each page of a report. This article shows you how you can use code to print the sum of a column of numbers on each page of a report. The code assumes the field that you are summing is numeric.
This article assumes that you are familiar with Visual Basic for Applications and with creating Microsoft Access applications using the programming tools provided with Microsoft Access. For more information about Visual Basic for Applications, please refer to your version of the "Building Applications with Microsoft Access" manual.
NOTE: Visual Basic for Applications is called Access Basic in Microsoft Access version 2.0. For more information about Access Basic, please refer to the "Building Applications" manual.
NOTE: This article explains a technique demonstrated in the sample files, RptSampl.exe (for Microsoft Access for Windows 95 version 7.0) and RptSmp97.exe (for Microsoft Access 97).
