Performing calcs in a recordset

Performing calcs in a recordset

Is there a way to perform calculations to a recordset? For example min, max, avg? I can do that in an array, but there has to be a better way than copying recordset elements to an array ( which I can't figure out anyway). Any help would be much appreciated.

RE: Performing calcs in a recordset

Since a recordset can be based on an SQL string you can use the SQL functions min, max, avg etc.

There are many examples of this in the MS ACCESS help files. Search for "min", "max", "avg" etc and look at the DAO example.

Hope this helps.

I found those examples and they were a great help, thanks! Any idea on how to get a set of elements from an SQL statement into an array?

Thanks in advance.
