Query on a string of calculations?

    I'm adding up a number of fields to obtain one value, and adding up another
    group of fields to obtain another value. I then calculate a third field by
    subtracting one of those values from the other, and if the absolute
    difference is greater than X, then further action is indicated for the record.

    So to create a report of those records requiring further action, do I have
    to redo all the calculations that are happening in the form since none of the
    results are being stored in a table?

    If you moved these calculations back to a query, then you would only have to
    do it once.

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!
