I want to subtract, add, multiply, and divide different records in my Access query....How do I do this?  For example:

Select Dog, Cat, Beaver
From Animals

I want to divide Dog into Cat, and subtract Beaver from Dog.


I would like to apologize for my example and appreciate your help with this nonetheless.

cheers.

Select Cat/Dog, Dog-Beaver from YourTable

or in the QueryBuilder:

in Column1 in the field row:  Expr1: Cat/Dog

in Column2, in the Field Row Expr2: Dog-Beaver

that will generate this SQL:

Select Cat/Dog as Expr1, Dog-Beaver as Expr2 from YourTable

the two are EXACTLY equivalent.

This of course assumes that Dog, Cat and Beaver are fields the hold NUMBERS in YourTable.
