Calculation on a continuous form (Acc 97 sr2 on 95b)
I am trying to create a form that shows Employee Name, Total Hours allocated, and a bar graph as:
boxgraph.width = [totalofhours]
calculated on form_Current
What I am getting is: the value for [totalofhours] is taken from the first record and all the boxes are shown as the same value.
How can I get the value for the box.width to be calculated for each record on the continuous form? (about 15)."Heading for the deep end"

Only the contents (data) of controls vary by record in a continuous form (because the value depends on the control source). Formatting of a control, such as Width, is the same for all records.
(Note: you may have seen examples of changing the background color of the detail section or of controls in a continuous form. This is all done by clever manipulation of the control source of controls. See for instance Mark Liquorman's great demo, downloadable from http://www.Liquorman.net/Tips.html; look for 'Highlight a Single Row'.)
You might try the following:
<UL><LI>Place an unbound text box in the detail section of the form.
<LI>If you like, you can make its border and background style transparent.
<LI>Set its font to Terminal; you can experiment with font size later.
<LI>Set its control source to
