    I have a query that is setup with the group by total, and many of the fields
    set to SUM.

    I have been using these sum totals to generate charts in both forms and on
    reports.
    One chart is supposed to show 2 styles of rental equipment vs the number of
    clients.
    In order for this chart to work, i need a field on my query that would
    contain the # of nonrentals.

    I enter an expr. in an extra column on the query... and when it runs, the
    parameter entry windows pop up... 1 window for each field mentioned within
    the expression. If i just hit enter, the query runs perfectly and the expr.
    returns the correct value.... but I dont want the prompts to display. I just
    want the query to run, the expression to calculate the value, and the results
    to show.

    This parameter is being looked for because the query can not find the field
    you used in your expression

    What is the expression you used in your query to calculate this value?
