Inv. 3 forms 2 DB

I have 3 Forms and 2 DataBase's inv.db and addremove.db

1 form to add Items not already in the inv.db

2 forms to pull up the stock# and QTY in inv.db and eather add or remove qty from stock and my problem is how do I write in the Add form how to change the qty in the inv.db?

I know this is easy just cant for the life of me find the write code for this.

RE: Inv. 3 forms 2 DB

Attach to the "add" table and subtract from its quantity field.

RE: Inv. 3 forms 2 DB

where might that be? I very new to paradox. And just trying to fix what was done b4 me.

RE: Inv. 3 forms 2 DB

ok did that but it has a connot combine object and property error, with .QTY

RE: Inv. 3 forms 2 DB

You might have to back up and punt and do it as a batch with a query.

RE: Inv. 3 forms 2 DB

so there is nothing I can Add to depart that will update the qty ? wouldnt think it would be this hard. Also when i have a Lookup how can I have it look up the qty on the lame line. like when i look up part xyz it also grabs the qty for that same item?
