    You can call the geometric mean function in Excel, which is easier than
    writing a custom function. See the following KB article:

    How to call Excel functions from within Access 2000
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=198571

    These samples use early binding, so they require that a reference by checked
    for the "Microsoft Excel X.X Object Library", where X.X is the version number
    (9.0 for Office 2000, 10.0 for Office 2002 and 11.0 for Office 2003). You can
    also use late binding, which will free your code of version specific
    references.

    The following early bound code example works in Access, after setting a
    reference to Excel:

    Option Compare Database
    Option Explicit

    Sub xlGeoMean()
    On Error GoTo ProcError

    Dim objExcel As Excel.Application
    Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    MsgBox objExcel.Application.GeoMean(4, 5, 8, 7, 11, 4, 3)


    ExitProc:
    ' Cleanup
    On Error Resume Next
    objExcel.Quit
    Set objExcel = Nothing
    Exit Sub
    ProcError:
    MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description, _
    vbCritical, "Error in procedure xlGeoMean..."
    Resume ExitProc
    End Sub

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!
