    Unanswered: data sheet

    I have a sub form in datasheet view
    I have a calculated field called WEIGHT
    the calculation is done with vba

    the issue is
    if the first row shows a value of 100
    then the second row also shows 100 which is to be 50

    if I click on the second row then
    both the first and the second row shows 50

    same when I click the first row, both the rows shows 100

    the calculation part is ok

    the individual field is not retaining the value independently

    I have attached the picture

    any help will help me take a break for a cup of coffee

    As a rule, Calculated Values should not be stored in a Table, they should simply be re-calculated, as needed, in other Forms or Reports. They way to have the value Record-appropriate is to do the calculation in the Control Source of the Textbox. The syntax for that would be similar to this:

    =[Control1] * [Control2]

    Note that the Square Brackets are required when using the Control Names in the Control Source, like this.

    Hope this helps!

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