    ADDING in a TABLE

    Can anyone help?
    I have a 4 column table: Stock No., Cost, Repairs, Total Cost. I want "Total Cost" to automatically display "Cost"+"Repairs". It seems so basic but I cant figure it out. Should this done in a Query or report??
    Thanks

    Hi,
    If your TotalCost is simply Cost + Repairs, then you shouldn't store it in a table at all (you're effectively duplicating information). Whenever you need the Total Cost, you can create it - in a query, on a form, in a report or wherever.
    Hope that helps.
