      Creating a summary field from a summary field

      Post

      I have a summary field for invoices for the current year, but I need another field that summarizes that field through many years (cumulative charges throughout the life of the contract).  How do you do this?  I have Filemaker Pro and it will not let me select a summary field as another summary option.  I'm pretty new to filemaker, so a website with specific details or steps would be best.

      Example:

      FY11 Cumulative Invoices    Contract Cumulative Invoices

      200                                         200

      500                                         700
