Add Total row for table (column is not summarized)



I have a number column in Table report.

I don't need to Sum() this column (marked as "Don't summarize"), but I still want to see Total sum for this column.


I have several lines for each date with different figures and I need to see them all.

For example I have lines with 3, 5 & -7fro today. If I mark the column as "Sum" - I'll have just one line with 0.

But I need to see all the lines and have Report Total at the same time.






You could use a  table visual to display data in your table, mark as Sum, and then turn on Total.

I mentioned in the question that I can't mark "Sum" - it must be marker as "Don't summarize".

In this case Grans Totals do not appear regardless of "Totals" setting.



If that is the case, I am afraid there is no such a option to show total row in your table visual. Thank you for your understanding.


By the way, why cannot mark it as "SUM"?

Thanks, Charlie


Regarding "why" - again, I mentioned it in my question (with some figure corrections):

>> For example I have lines with 3, 5 & -8 for today. If I mark the column as "Sum" - I'll have just one line with 0.

>> But I need to see all three lines and have Report Total at the same time.


Currently as a workaround I've added a line ID field to report and made the column as narrow as possible (so it's almost invisible) but I don't like this solution.

For the ID field, you can right click on the ID column in the table view and mark "Hide in report view" --> This will not show in the report view.

So as far as I understand it's just impossible to have grand total in Table if you have "Don't summarize" numeric values?

Can someone confirm that?

I also faced the same issue today, I added a card visual at the end to show totals and in tables I made as don't summarize. This overcame my problem.
