Summation not working as expected

Dane Thomas 21 Reputation points

On the screen shot below, I am trying to sum Ext Price on the Customer level and a grand total on the location ID level. On the detail, I have the formula as Fields!Quantity.Value * Fields!UnitPrice.Value...easy enough. However, when I am trying to sum these I am getting wrong values. The formula I am using is what I thought I have been using on other reports which is sum(Fields!Quantity.Value * Fields!UnitPrice.Value). Am I missing something?

    Hi, @Dane Thomas ,

    I think the issue is probably with your group. I made a demo. You can refer to my grouping. Please check the Row groups in the lower left corner of the design report. (If you can’t see the details, please open the column groups -> Advanced Mode)
    Make sure that your total row is in the group Customer and has a parallel relationship with Details.
    If it doesn’t work,Please take a screenshot of your detailed table design, so that I can reproduce your issue.


    Best Regards,

    I was able to correct the totals with the fix you suggested. I am now running into another issue. When verify the detail in my report it appears that the quanitities and the extended price the items I've sampled have been multiplied by 3. For example, when looking at the order in the top row of the screen shot below, the quantity should be 1 and the ext price $322 and change. Do you know what might be causing this. Sorry, I am new to this :o
