Why not create a SUM query for the field you wish to add up?

Use Access to create the SUM create and call this for your DAO recordset

What a grand idea.  Normally I would have done it that way.  I guess I was just basing my answer on the example csm gave.

Maybe you should reject my answer and allow entretec to answer (with an example).
