can't exclude zeros in my report

P: n/a
Hi,

I am trying to exclude zeros from my report by setting a report filter
:

[SumOfDebt]-[SumOfCredit] <> 0

This excludes most of the Zeros, but not all.
i have about 60.000 records in the Group query that sums the fields
[Debt] and the field [Credit]

all the fields Debt and Credit, are rounded to 2 decimals

Thanks for your help

You might be getting records that don't quite =0 because of a rounding
error.
How about using:

Abs([SumOfDebt]-[SumOfCredit]) >= .01

Perhaps that would stop the unwanted records?
