Simple report that pulls in rows of data with a field that contains dollars. The report is grouped by client and sub-totaled by same. Each client has a group sub-total of the dollar column.

I need to sort the report in descending order by the sum of each group. I can get the sum to appear, but when I try to add a sort, there is no way to create the sub total, as the aggregate is in the report definition, separately.

I cannot find a function to create the subtotal in the grouping dialog.

What simple concept am I missing?

Many thanks in advance!

Two weeks and no responses - can anybody point me in the right direction? I really need to come up with a solution - otherwise I have to look for a new reporting tool.

Will this require programming to set up? I need some guidance.

Thanks again!
