If your Group Member IDs are no longer sequential due to removing members from the group, you can run a utility report to re-sequence them via the path "Tools\ Utilities\ Group Member Renumbering". You will be prompted whether you wish to reorder by List Date as well and provided with the instructions to do so if such was the preference.

Within the view of the Group Tab, you will note that you are provided with a series of fields that summarize the totals of all the members within the group of interest: Total Accounts, Active & Closed, Totals for Principal, Paid and Owing amounts.
