Use either of these options to suppress the records and exclude them from the totals:
  • Remove the records using the Report > Select Expert instead of the Section Expert

  • Create a formula to exclude the values from the total
    For example: We are suppressed proposals with a status of Declined. We want a total for the Amount Asked field. Create a formula to exclude the Declined proposals from the total: if Proposal Status <> "Declined" then Amount Asked. Sum the new formula instead of the Amount Asked field.
