Problem getting info from forms to tables!

Problem getting info from forms to tables!

Problem getting info from forms to tables!

Hi People,

I need help. I have a table with a field - 'commissionvalue'.
I have a form with an input box - 'commission value' which is worked out from the input of two other boxes. This is calculated by an expression that I created in the expression editor but I can't work out how to post the answer back into the table, into commissionvalue! Please help.
Many Thanks, Alastair.

RE: Problem getting info from forms to tables!

Put the fomula in the Afterupdate event of one of the two, or even both of the other text boxes.
So when you key in a value and leave the box it will calculate the value. and stick it in the "commissionvalue"

Like so
Private Sub Text1_AfterUpdate()
    If Val(Text1) = 0 Or Val(Text2) = 0 Then
        Exit Sub
        Me![commissionvalue] = Text1 * Text2
    End If
End Sub

then have the "commissionvalue" text box bound to the table like normal.

RE: Problem getting info from forms to tables!

Hi Doug,
Thanks for your help mate. I got it working today to my great relief but as I'm sure you know once you get one thing sorted another rears its ugly head! I wish to create a button on a form which takes the info from that form and pastes it into a template document in Word. Is this possible? I'm not really sure where to start!
