I have many formulas that calculate discount off of list, profit, etc... in the ultrawingrid for windows forms. I have figured out how to force the summary button onto the column header, but when I press it, sum and other numeric summaries are disabled... any help would be appreciated.
If the numeric summary types are disable, it means that the column's DataType is not numeric. What's the DataType of your column?
it is a formula column, which I am now learning is a string datatype, but would like a way around it. I tried adding a column to the data table and using the Calculations complete event to fill in the new column with the numeric value of the calculation, but I end up with errors because there are too many formula columns

Having a formula on the column has no bearing on the DataType of the column. If the column is not bound, then you can set the DataType property on it when you create it. If it is bound, then the DataType comes from the data source.
Cool, I will try that
