    how to get a total of all orders

    Asked by ptg on March 25, 2015 at 05:32 PM

    I used the purchase order which does a great job of getting the total of the items that are ordered. Now i want a total of all purchases done. I can download to excel but do not know how to total the costs. The field has costs for each item ordered and a total cost for the order but not for all the orders.
