    I have this very simple MSaccess 2000 database that I am building and I am stuck. I need three fields completed which will have formulas in them and I am not sure how to do this. I do not want it done with code because I know absolutely nothing about that. If anybody could help me I could email my database to them. I sure would appreciate any help at all. I’m sure for someone that knows MSaccess good it wouldn't take them long

    No formulas in tables.
    Go to the forms tab.
    Hit New form (use Wizard).
    Choose your table, OK.
    Make the form.
    From the Control toolbox, draw 3 textboxes on your form.
    In the first one, suppose you want to add 6% sales tax to a value in a field called "Total". Put this formula in the textbox: =Total*1.06

    Let me know if you need help specifically with the formulas.

    I am finding this very hard to explain. I want to subtract one total from another total. Both of the totals are on different forms. I could send you the database so you can look at it if you want. It would probably be much easier to understand.

    thanx
