  1. Thank you, I have checked, I could be wrong but there is no one matrix/field is taken from return table.

    Why I am saying it is wrong is that. my take on this question is – if I drop region and countd (order ID(returns)) to row will return me order, then I will put sum of sales to the Text field. Then subtotal, it shows that, Central have 98,201.
