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.
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.
