Hi Rahul,

You can only show the sum of set elements in an in/out level, not at a field level.

Whereas in a group even Groups or sub groups can show sum of field values. This is one main difference between group ans set and the other being Group is a static and a set is dynamic.

Sub total /groups total - 

Grand total - 

Hope it helps!
