Expressions calculation Help Please!

P: n/a
I am just trying to create a simple ms access database for a collection.
Anyway I am trying to compute a margin price based on a percentage added to
the orginal cost. For some reason I am unable to get the text box to
display the computation. Where in the properties dialog box do I put the
expressoin to display the currency price I want? and how do I convert the
percentage to a number to be added to the ogrinal price. Below is the code
I have.

([Orignial Price]+( [Margin Precentage] /100))

Thanks for any help. William

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.
