    sum in form footer

    Hi guys!

    I have this problem and I cant figure it out how many times I have tried it myself.

    I have this subform, and it has 4 textbox: three that is bound and the one that is unbound form.

    when I do calculations in the bound textbox, i can successfully arrive at the sum of textbox3 but when I sum the fourth unbound textbox, it give an error inside the textbox.

    Does it mean I cannot make a summation of an UNBOUND textbox?

    You can not do a sum on an unbound field.

    You need to add the unbound field to your query and then bring it to the form.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
