In the Crosstab Query Wizard dialog box that appears next, you choose the field
that will be calculated for each row and column intersection and the function to use
for the calculation. The results of the calculation will appear in the row and column
intersections in the query results. Oren needs to calculate the sum of the
InvoiceAmt field value for each row and column intersection.
6. Click InvoiceAmt in the Fields list box, click Sum in the Functions list box, and
then make sure that the Yes, include row sums check box is checked. The “Yes,
include row sums” option creates a column showing the overall totals for the values
in each row of the query recordset. See Figure 5-22.
