Total a value in Reports

I know there will be someone clever who has done this. I have a report that lists Labour Cost, Part Cost and Total cost. These are calculated using a series of custom rules. When I run the report for the month there are more than 100 records but I would like to put a total for each of those columns at the bottom of the report.

so let's say your original query looks like this:

SELECT 

    Item, Labour_Cost, Part_Cost, Total_cost

FROM

    TABLE1

WHERE

    Item LIKE 'ABC%'

in order to add a totaling row we have to build a new (one-entry) table and then "UNION" the two tables together. So you would add the following at the bottom of the query:

UNION

SELECT 

    'Total' AS Item,

    SUM(Labour_Cost) AS Labour_Cost,

    SUM(Part_Cost) AS Part_Cost,

    SUM(Total_Cost) AS Total_Cost

FROM

    TABLE1

WHERE

    Item LIKE 'ABC%'

GROUP BY ''
