    I am using MS Office 2007, I have a DB set up with multiple tables. Table names 'Inventory' and 'Inventory Transactions'. I am attempting to perform a sum function between the 2 tables.
    in the 'Inventory' table I have fields called 'Suggested Retail' and 'Total'.
    In the 'Inventoy Transaction' table I have a field called 'Quantity'.

    In the Total Field I am trying to get a SUM (*) of 'Suggested Retail' and 'Quantity'.
    I can get the formula to work using 2 fields within the same table as such =Sum([Suggested Retail]*[Target Stock Level]).

    When I try and add field of the other table I get error. here is what I am attempting to use:
    =Sum([Suggested Retail]*[Inventory Transactions]![Quantity]) or
    =Sum([Suggested Retail]*([Inventory Transactions]![Quantity]))

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Ideally this should be done in a Query that Joins the 2 tables, where are you trying to do it?
