    Philip,

    You don't really need someone from Chicago unless you want to meet in person.

    You could post your question/s here.

    Email me and I can give you the name/s of person/s fairly close to Chicago.

    Ken,

    I'm attempting to do simple multiplication in a set. The data is coming from two different tables. Seems like this would be a common and useful function. In Field Expressions, a simple calculation. What am I missing (aside from patience).

    Thanks,
    Phil

    I would remind you that there is a listing of Alpha Five consultants available. If you require a little more than the type of help available on this board, you might consider hiring a consultant. You do not need a consultant near you.

    Hi Philip,

    What is your expression and where are you defining it? Are you using a form or browse based on a set? If so what you are trying to do should be pretty straight forward using the Calc field from the Drag/Drop list or by clicking Form from the menu bar and choosing Claculated fields.

    Philip, This is quite simple if you have a grasp of the the concept.

    Table 1 - how many
    Table 2 - Cost

    Main table - Item

    Each table has a numeric key field - set to auto increment in field rules.

    Create a set based on the main table as parent.
    Create a one to one link to each table.

    Create a form based on the set.

    add a browse showing Item form the main table.

    using the drag drop (DD) list:
    add field1 from table 1
    add field2 from table 2

    drag a calculation field from the DD list onto the form and in the genie that appears build the equation

    Field1 * Feild2


    see the attachment for an example
