    I have a formula =SUM([RECEIVED]-[ISSUED]) when i input into the form
    the numbers will update and will work, however, when i try to copy and
    paste records into the table and i open the form back up the forumla
    only works for the items that i typed in manually and not the ones that
    i cut/pasted into the table -- any ideas why or how i can get around
    this?

    Z, as a general rule, you shouldn't stored calculated values and you should
    cut/paste directly into a table. Caculated fields don't need to be stored
    b/c they can always be calculated at any time. If you need to add records to
    a table, use a form.

    LOL, that should say:

    You shouldn't cut/paste directly into a table

    If your fields are text fields used in the math the problem could be you have
    a leading space or some other character when you copied/pasted.
