    Updating Calculations in Protected Form (2000 S/R 1)

    I have created a formula in a form. I have a column of numbers with a formula to total the column. The formula updates automatically when my form is unprotected. When I protect it, it does not update. Is there a way to update the total in the protected form without using an update field macro?

    Form fields have a property called 'Calculate on Exit' which causes all of your calculation fields to update automatically when you move the selection out of that form field. Unprotect the form and double click one of your form fields and try putting a check box in this property.
