    More continuous form issues. (2000)

    I am building an ordering system/POS for a friend's business.

    I'm trying to use a continuous form for the main screen.

    I'm having issues with the calculation of the totals in a timely manner. In the attached, I can calculate the totals, but only using a timer event. When the timer kicks off, I get the "Calculating..." message in the status bar. Annoying. Also, if I make the timer fire too often, the screen flashes. Too slow, and my totals aren't always accurate. Is there a better way?

    You should put a text box in the subform's footer to calculate the sum of the extended price (using the expression mentioned by SteveH in your previous thread). You can then place a text box on the main form that refers to the text box on the subform, and hide the text box on the subform, or even the entire subform footer.

    SteveH's suggestion did not work for me. :-(

    I ended up writing some code to fill in the fields on the bottom of the form.

    Also, it is not a sub form, just a regular form.
