    Multiplication Calculation

    Atlantic

      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.
