Displaying grand totals for rows in cross tables

You can display grand totals for each row in the cross table. Grand totals are by default calculated using the same expression that is used for calculating the cell values. For example, a grand total can indicate a 'grand sum' or a 'grand average'.

In the cross table below, the aggregation method 'Sum' is used to aggregate the 'Sales' values, and accordingly, Grand totals are also calculated as a 'Sum'.

Grand total rows

Totals are not based on the aggregated values shown in the cross table cells; they are by default based on the underlying data table rows. For example, if 'Average' is used as aggregation method, the Grand total average of a row takes into account all the underlying data table rows, and not only the averages shown in the cell values. See Displaying totals.
Note: There is, however, an option to base a total on the already aggregated cell values in the cross table. If you use this option, the total will be calculated as the sum of the cell values, no matter expression used for the calculations of the cell values.


  1. Right-click the cross table, and select Properties in the opened menu.
    The Properties popover is shown.
  2. Click Totals.
    The Totals section is shown.
  3. Beneath Display totals, select the Grand total for rows check box.


Grand totals are displayed to the right of each cross table row.
