Using code, I am having a challenge totaling numbers from 5 different fields and displaying the total in a totals field. When I the following for example:
txtotal = txtNum1 + txtnum2 + txtNum3 + txtNum4 + txtNum5
Let's say that each field is hold the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 respectfully.
The result is 12345. It is concatinating the numbers instead of summing them up.
any ideas on how to do this in code.

> txtotal = txtNum1 + txtnum2 + txtNum3 + txtNum4 + txtNum5

Try this:
     txTotal = CLng(txtNum1) + CLng(txtNum2) + CLng(txtNum3) + CLng(txtNum4) + CLng(txtNum5)

Hope That Helps,
