Help. Two Unknown Values in Query

P: 3
Hi every body:
I have program store which appeared the new salary to the unit out
The problem is: 2 values unknown (out_salary,out_amount)
The table(info) contain 8 fields (id,code_store,code_unit,date_rec,in_quantity,in_s alary,in_amount,out_quantity)
The quiry must give me the following result:
[out_salary] "take from [new_salary]
[out_amount] = [out_quantity]*[out_salary]
[sum_quantity] "accumulative summation" (In_quantity]- [out_quantity])
[sum_amount]" "accumulative summation" ([in_amount]- [out_amount])
[New_salary] =([In_quantity]- [out_quantity])/ ([in_amount]- [out_amount])

At last the report appeared as this

You need to create those fields, they are not already in your data. So you cannot just reference them, you need to create them. Your SQL code for the query should contain something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. [new_salary] AS out_salary,[out_quantity]*[in_salary] as [out_amount] 
If you're using the query editor (GUI) you'll have columns like this:

Where a new field is simply a copy of an old field, you just need to select it and rename with the AS directive. In the editor you simply add a label, a colon and then the name of the old field.

But out_salary is just another name for new_salary. If you simply change
the problem goes away.
