    Hello DesertRose,

    Are you performing a mathematical function to obtain the "Distance" field value within the "tbl1" table?

    If not, simply change the source of the "Distance" field on the "Mileage" form to equal "Distance".

    If you are using a calculation for the "Distance" field within the "tbl1" table, I highly recommend removing the "Distance" field within the "tbl1" table, and performing the calculation on your forms, or reports, as needed. Using calculations within fields on tables can lead to ugly data corruption issues. ;)

    Simply make a query with the required fields, and make one of the query fields an Expression to calculate the mileage. Then change the source of the "Mileage" form to the new Query and update the field sources accordingly.

    Good Luck
