The expression would be placed in the controlsource property of the
text box (be sure to place an equal sign in front of your expression.
If I understand correctly you are trying to increase the original cost
by a percentage?
In this example lets say that the original cost is 100 and the margin
is 50%. To calculate the 'price' you could use this formula:
=cost + (cost * margin). If you get the percentage as a whole number 50
then the function would be something like this
= cost + ( cost * (margin/100))
Hope this helps. Let me know if I misunderstood your request.
Thanks
