Can someone please describe how to write a calculation where the target field is the multiplication of the contents of two other fields?

I would also appreciate a link to any educational material on writing calculations.

Thanks

If you actually mean multiplication in the mathematical sense, and you wish to multiply two number fields, its as simple as:

firstField * secondField (the asterisk is the standard FM operator that means multiply)

As for getting help, you could do a lot worse than looking up Defining calculation fields in FileMaker Help.
