    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
