    Exclamation Unanswered: Multiplying a sum

    Ok, ive worked out the sum of a table using the query wizard, how i want to multiply what i have got my 10%

    how would i go about doing it?
    heres the data

    Book Value
    1.00
    95.00
    40.00
    199.00
    55.00
    69.00
    24.00
    20.00
    54.00
    82.00
    48.00
    35.00
    24.00
    1.00
    28.00
    76.00
    43.00
    33.00
    15.00
    35.00
    23.00
    25.00
    16.00
    20.00
    14.00
    50.00
    75.00
    36.00
    142.00
    36.00

    then the total value is $1414.00
    so, how would i get a query to tell me 10% of that total

    I believe you'd create a new field in the query set for Expression and have the field be something like MyTotal10Percent: Round([MyTotal] * .1, 2)
