You have to go to volumes>> calculate materials

In short:

1. Create the surfaces
2. Create the sample lines and sample the surfaces
3. Computer materials and choose those two sections (created from the existing and proposed surfaces)
4. Create the table or report.

The two surfaces you will most likely be interested in are the EG and Datum surface created from the Corridor.

Also when creating the corridor top & datum surfaces be  sure to apply the appropriate "overhang correction" for top or bottom links and add a surface boundary to each surface.
