    Hi,

    I'm trying to use the Dsum field in a form. I am using the =DSum("((([Trade
    Date NAV]-([Corr Date NAV]+[Dist Rate]))*[Shares]))","W0005 Table","[BIN]=" &
    [BIN]). My problem is that BIN is a text field. I need to change it to a
    numeric. The BIN is on the form. Do I need to insert val([BIN]) in the Dsum
    expression or the BIN text box or the SQL statement? Does anyone have any
    ideas?

    thanks

    First, why do you need to change it to a number, just add a single quote
    before and after

    =DSum("((([Trade Date NAV]-([Corr Date NAV]+[Dist Rate]))*[Shares]))","W0005
    Table","[BIN]='" & [BIN] & "'")

    If you still want to change it to a number, try this

    =DSum("((([Trade Date NAV]-([Corr Date NAV]+[Dist Rate]))*[Shares]))","W0005
    Table","Cdbl([BIN])=" & Cdbl([BIN]))
    --
    The next line is only relevant to Microsoft''s web-based interface users.
    If I answered your question, please mark it as an answer. It''s useful to
    know that my answer was helpful
    HTH, good luck

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!
