    Access 2003.
    I have a field on a form that shows the number of days between 2 dates

    =Datedif("D",[Arrive],[Depart]).
    This shows the information in a subform in datasheet view. I have a
    text box on a form and would like to show the total of the dates. I
    have tried placing a box in the footer and referencing that with a sum
    total but the count is incorrect.

    TIA
    Jerry

    Jerry,

    Summary fields must reference fields in the RecordSource. For example, if
    your first calculated control is named MyDateDiff, then:

    =Sum(MyDateDiff) will not work. Use the following instead:

    =Sum(Datediff("D",[Arrive],[Depart]))

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!
