Unanswered: Urgent please need help.
I am very new to this Acces.I am trying to design a payroll system.
I have Created an Employee table with the following fields :EMP Id ,Name,Basic Pay,Total Working Days in a month,Actual Worked Days ,Earned Salary.
Now i have created Form with all the fields in the Table and am calculating the Earned Salary using Control source using Earned Salary=BasicPay/Total no of working Days in month* Actual Working Days.
Now i want to populate this calculated field in the table. I will be giving the Actual Days as input on the form because this value will be changing for employees based on their Days present.So,Can you please help me out.

Storing calculated values, in a Table, is seldom appropriate, with only a few specialized exceptions, and this scenario is not one of those. They should simply be re-calculated, as needed, in Forms, Queries or Reports.

The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
