shared variables will do the same as running total but you do all the work in formulas. usually in groups of 3, reset, increment, display, start with the easiest:
reset (usually in a group header)
shared numbervar x;
x:=0;
""  // will hide the reset
 
increment (usually in details)
shared numbervar x;
if some condition then
 x := x + {table.field};
"" //again hides the increment from displaying on the report.
 
display (usually in a group footer)
shared numbervar x;
x

it's a sample to follow...it is not working since I have no clue as to your data or your logic.

Why can't you use a running total?  Is this some sort of class assignment?
An alternative to lockwelle's approach is to do it all in one formula without the separate reset formula.  It would look something like this:
 
NumberVar sumTotal;
 
if PreviousIsNull({table.group_field}) or {table.group_field} <> Previous({table.group_field}) then
 sumTotal := 0
else
 sumTotal := sumTotal + {table.Column1}
 
This sets the value to 0 at the beginning of the report and whenever the group you're adding values for changes.  If you don't have a group, take out the "or {table.group_field} <> Previous({table.group_field}) "
