How do i calculate in a query?

How do i calculate in a query?

(OP)
I am trying to calculate a filed in a table. How orders are still out standing.

Thanks.

RE: How do i calculate in a query?

Is there an item that shows whether the product is shipped, like a shipped date? You could create an expression that tests to see if that column contains data and, if it does, print nothing, if it doesn't print a message like "Outstanding". For instance:

 if (Shiped_Date  ==  null ) {"Outstanding"}  else {""}

Then, if you want to see just the outstanding orders, limit the new computed column to Outstanding.

RE: How do i calculate in a query?

This is an ACCESS question? I thought it was Brio. Sorry about that.  If you're using Access, one technique might be to use an immediate if (IIF) as a new field in your query grid. For instance:

Outstanding: IIF([Date Shipped]is null,"Yes","No")
