Report - Totalling an Unbound Field?

P: n/a

I have a report driven by a SQL database. I have a populated recordset
having a user name and a number of data/time fields. I process these
time fields in the report's Detail_Print event. Basically I'm coming
up with a duration between 3 sets of dates (subtracting off hours -
eve, lunch, weekends, holiday) and coming up with the number of
seconds. In the detail list I can easily print the value of n days,
n hours, n minuts, n seconds.

User and the average time. Using Access 2002 I have not been able to

which is set to be a "running sum" and has it's control source set to

When I run the report (with the hidden sum field temporarily unhidden)

Can I use the reports built in methods to sum an unbound field? Any
suggestions are greatly appreciated.
