Default functions(control source)

good day all,
  i want to create a data field that is the result of calculations from other fields.e:g

field 1-1000
field 2 -25
field 3-field 1*field 2
so the data in field 3 will be a calculated field .e.g-25000

am just trying out my first vb database application.

my background is access development,but i want to move entirely to vbasic database.


also,i want to know how to use the parent/child form features in vbasic development.

thanks.

hi there...

what do you mean by vbasic database?? VB is a great front end for access..

also.. your problem with the fields are in the database?? or when you load the data?? or you already have the data??

and to use parent/child form you have to look at mdi forms...

HTH

Hi sola,
   You can use Number or Currency data type in access accoding to the type of data you are going to save in the field.
