Last Modified: 2010-08-05
I'm developing Accounts & Receivable Module. I find difficult when I calcuate the debit credit calculation, for e.g.

My report figure should be

Date          Particular     Debit     Credit     Balance
1/2/2002     Inv 292             $1200          $1200
2/2/2002     Paymnt 219          $ 500     $ 700
5/2/2002     Inv 392          $200          $ 900
6/2/2002     Inv 394          $ 50          $ 950

In above statement, how can I calculate the Balance in Access.

    You almost had it with that link you provided.

    All you need to do is put a text field in the detail section under balance. In the control source for that text box put:
    Now the part you were missing:
    9 boxes below the Control Source in the properties window you should see Running Sum. Change that to Over All and that should do it.

    Another option is to add a field to your RecordSource query.  Call this field Balance where:

    Balance: [Debt]-[Credit]

    and enter Balance for ControlSource property of txtBalance on your form.

    If you want to have displays like ($120.00) for -$120.00, you need to revise Format property of txtBalance on your form to do this.

    Do you want the balance result like this:

    Date       Particular Debit     Credit      Balance
    1/2/2002 INV 292     $1,200.00     $1,200.0 $0.00
    2/2/2002 Paymnt 219  $500.00     $700.00      ($200.00)
    2/5/2002 Inv 392     $200.00     $900.00      ($900.00)
    2/6/2002 Inv 394     $50.00     $950.00      ($1,800.00)

    You should post your question in a seperate topic. But why not just use Excel? If there are some things you need Access for, just link to the excel sheet from Access.
