I am having a very difficult time creating a computed field in my
report. I am still unsure how to create the expression after reading
the help.
I am currently using Infomaker 4.0 to generate reports based on our own
Technical Support Dept. for our Company.
EQUATION:
For each call logged for each client there is a # generated, linked to
this # is another table where the analysts log their time spent on a
call, so there are several actions for each call. Each action has a
total minutes spent, but I need all those action minutes totalled and
linked to the call # in the above table.

I would appreciate some help.
Thank you in advance,

If I understand you correctly:

Sort the report by call#. Create a group based on call# (Rows, Create
group)
In the detail band you will have the field that shows the time for each
call, e.g., called call_time
In the footer band for this group, create a computed field: sum(call_time
for group 1)
