Using MS Access/Report Footer shows blanks for fields

Question
QUESTION: Hello,
My totals row in the report footer shows all blanks. Any Ideas?

ANSWER: Not without seeing the database. If the report has data but just the totals row is blank, something is wrong with the expressions in the controls in the footer.

Hope this helps,

QUESTION: I was playing around with it. I noticed when I click on the fields that are blank in the report footer oddly enough the total shows. I did not program any logic to do this.  Is this a refresh issue or something?

Answer
I've see things like that happen sometimes. But I'm not really sure what causes it. Are you looking in Print Preview mode?
