    im setting up a database whereby there are 5 tables with the same
    column (points), 4 of which are for indivdual components and the 5th to
    gather a total from all of the individual components.
    all of the cells are in the same format (number) and i am unable to
    work out how to get the overall total from the other 4 tables on to the
    table which will collect the final totals.

    if anyone could help i would be grateful

    Step away from the keyboard! You are trying to "commit spreadsheet". The word
    "cells" gives it away. Unless I'm wrong (which happens frequently) your
    tables have serious normalization problems and just will NOT work correctly
    in a relational database.

    If I am wrong (which again happens frequently), you could prove it by
    providing sample data for your tables and what you need to accomplish.

    I highly suggest getting some relational database training or reading
    "Database Design for Mere Mortals" by Hernandez before proceeding any further
    on this database.
