Scripting: Problem ought to be easy but I am simply frustrated ...

... almost ready to give up and trash 30 yeares of work.

 

Feild A is a summery total of tick mark in Feild Z

Feild B is a simple transfer of Feild A to Feild B (since Feild A is used for counting) 

$$Value C is the tick mark count of feilds equaling "x" value

$$Value D is the tick mark count of feilds equaling "y" value

$$Value E is the the adding of 1  IF  $$Value C and/or $$value D are greater than 0 (zero)

Feild F is Feild B - ($$Feild C + $$Feild D) + $$Vulue E

 

The DataViewer can track all the values above ...

The database itself does not reflect that Feild F has recieved the calculated value assigned to it - and remains empty.

I have spent 6 hours trying to account for all conceiveable problmes and I keep getting no where.  I know what I want to acheive ought to be "easy" but it is wearing me thin.

 

(minor rant)

I can't get to the local users group due to late evening bus service, and the lack of dependable transportation.  I am feeling isolated, frustrated, and beginning to loose confidence.
