    I need to automatically add 1 record (with a default value of 0/not null) to
    multiple related tables, easily done through say with a click of a command
    button. Is this possible?

    The purpose for this is to achieve a summary of totals for a specific set of
    records from different tables, and I know I can do this using subforms,
    however with about 6 tables there would just be too many subforms to be
    placed in 1 form.

    You can use a union query to achieve it

    SELECT SUM(AMOUNTFIELD) FROM TABLE A
    UNION ALL
    SELECT SUM(AnotherAmountField) FROM TABLE B
    .....

    you must only make sure to have the same number of "compatible" fields in
    each select

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!
