Sum Entries

P: 135
How do I sum entries? I am working on a form that keeps track of employee hours by labeling each day worked with a letter. "W" for work, "V" for vacation, etc. What I need to do is be able to add all the W's (say, each W equaling 8) and all the V's. Any suggestions?

If your table has fields like Day, W(number), V(number) then in the footer of the form, you can put a text box with the source
=Sum([W]) + Sum([V])

My table has fields for each day of the week. My company uses a simple letter code representing the time used that day. W = Regular 8 hour work day, V = Vacation, S = Sick, P = Personal. In the fields for each day of the week will be a letter. On my form I want to be able to add the total of different letters. If I have 5 V's I want to be able to show that numerically in an unbound text box. The figure in the text box is then applied to a field used to keep track of vacation time in the on close event of the form.

Tricky. Take a look at DCount

I think maybe you'd have to do
DCount("Monday", "MyTable", "LetterCode = 'W') + _
DCount("Tuesday", "MyTable", LetterCode = 'W') + _
DCount("Wednesday", "MyTable", "LetterCode='W') + etc.

But depending on what's in your table, you maybe have
"LetterCode='W' AND EmployeeNumber = " & EmployeeID & " AND WeekNumber = " & WeekNumber

That's how I'm doing it right now, but maybe someone has a better answer now that we have a little more info?
