Hi I inherited this spreadsheet and I need to have the same functionality in MS Access.  It is used to determine vehicle pricing and dates in inventory.  The pricing person quit yesterday and I know nothing about formulas but here they are:

Age
=FLOOR(SUM(NOW()-P2),1)

Current
=Current(I2:N2)

Status
=age(O2,G2, J2:M2)

Basic Sum
=SUM(H19+K19+M19)

Column Headings are A through X

Hi,
I believe the equivalents are:
1. =Int(Now-[Entered])
2. Current is not a built-in worksheet function - there must be some code in your workbook.
3. The same applies for Age - not an Excel function.
4. =[Cost]+[2nd]+[4th]

PS:
I suspect that Current would be something like:
=Nz([Last],Nz([4th],Nz([3rd],Nz([2nd],Nz([1st],Nz([Initial],0))))))

Hi Rory,
I have to go kick my user out of the database so I can try =Nz([Last],Nz([4th],Nz([3rd],Nz([2nd],Nz([1st],Nz([Initial],0))))))
out.
From my very limited understanding all I have to do is create  new module with that correct?
I will also check the spreadsheet to see where he has hidden any other coding.
I am so kicking myself for not taking any access classes.  I feel so stupid.
thank you so much.

Lori,
No, you would just enter that in a query grid. Nz is a built-in function so no code required.
