    How can the name of the report matter, since it is a customized report. But my question is very simple. The report income several amounts (US dollars) and puts the total at the bottom of the report. All I want to do is calculate a percent of that total and show it also on the report. It is really no different than a sales receipt, where the costs are totaled, then a tax percent of that total Is calculated, then added to the total. We’ve all seen those every time we make a purchase at the store. Hopefully I can make Quicken do the same thing in my report.
    This is what it might look like:
    3.50
    5.60
    2.00
    ———-
    11.10 subtotal
    1.67 tax
    ________
    12.77 total
    I just want to calculate the 15% “tax” in this example. How hard can this be? I would think that Quicken could do that, without my having to get out a calculator. If Quicken actually can sum the numbers, but not calculate the percent, please just tell me.

    Thank you,
