Prev: Unique ID Problem !!??Next: pages limitations From: dcrqueens on 18 Sep 2009 05:54 I have a report and it has a count at the end in a group footer. Not all of the groups will have a value. Can Access calculate the ones that should have a value and then if there is nothing for a group put None in the calculated field? My SUM function is as follows: =SUM([TotalFiles]) I have tried a variety of ways listed on the site and I cannot figure out the right combination of IIF Null to say none when there is no value. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you provide more detail, please. -- Dave Hargis, Microsoft Access MVP "dcrqueens" wrote: > Thank you Dave for the response.

OTOH, if the group does have records, but the value to sum has Null in all the records, then you can use: =Nz(Sum(x), "None") or, if you really feel the need to use IIf: =IIf(Sum(x) Is Null, "None", Sum(x)) -- Marsh MVP [MS Access]  |  Next  |  Last Pages: 1 2 Prev: Unique ID Problem !!??Next: pages limitations
