    Does anybody know how to insert formulas into tables? I have created a
    database for a Car Sales company and on my main form, I entered the
    'Profit' data field and then entered the following formula to calculate
    the profit: =([Vehicle Sale Price]-[Cost Price]) This works but I want
    the value to be entered into the main table as well as on the form and
    it isn't. Does anyone know how I can do this please?

    Thanks.

    As posted all the time.

    You don't store calculated values in the table. When you need the
    calculation, create it in your forms, queries, and reports.

    Storing it is redundant and leads to lots of other issues.

    For more details, read the hundreds of previous posts on the topic of
    "storing calculated" values in a table.

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!
