This data is imported from another system. Need to add certain types of pay, so in this case add their Normal pay and subtract any pay Docks. Later, I would need to add up the other columns as benefits. Challenging part is pay types are scattered among different columns. Not sure if I should attempt to build new tables, or just try to add the fields as they are? Any advice is appreciated!
the aim is store once, not store multiple times

The data is not standard in each column. AMT1 will contain NML (normal) pay for one employee, but the next employee's NML pay could be in AMT2. Not sure if I should move the data to new columns, construct IF statements, or if there's an easier way? Thanks.
I thought I might try running update queries from VB to move the data to new columns, so "NML" pay would go to a "NML" column, however, I cannot get the statement correct in VB. Any suggestions? See attached. Thanks!
