Hi @Amy1,

There is a summary bar at the top and/or bottom of each column. (The location depends on if you have grouping turned on or off.)

Just click on the summary bar and choose SUM.

I discuss the summary bar in my course.

Thanks @ScottWorld but how do I see the summary bar? I can't see one at all....


You will need to be in a grid view, and then hover your mouse at the bottom of the column (or at the top of a group).
