Hi,

I have two tables name tblAMKCC71 and tblAMKCGP:  

In tblAMKCC71 fields are: overnight, dayshift, eveningshift
In tblAMKCGP fields are: overnigh, dayshift, eveningshift

There is a third table  name tblrptPharmacy
In tblrptPharmacy field is: generatedOrders

I want to total tblAMKCC71 and tblAMKCGP fields together and put in tblrptPharmacy field name generatedOrders.

How do i go about doing this.

I know to create a query but i know how to sum single field but not the multiple fields of different table.

I am very beginner programmer in access.  Help greatly appreciated.

There is no relationship:  i am trying to put all the totals in table tblrptPharmacy.  So that i can create a report on monthly basis.  I have 10 tables for each building at my work,  the data get entered on daily basis.  But i have created query which pulls the data of previous month and does the sum for each field of each table. for example, Now say i have the sum of each field in the tblAMKC71 and also tblAMKCGP.  I want to add together certain fields of tblAMKCC71 and tblAMKCGP and put it in different table tblrptPharmacy and call the field name generatedOrders. Hope this is clear.

Well, here's literally what you asked for:

INSERT INTO tblrptPharmacy (GeneratedOrders) Select Sum(overnight+dayshift+eveningshift) from tblAMKCC71;
INSERT INTO tblrptPharmacy (GeneratedOrders) Select Sum(overnight+dayshift+eveningshift) from tblAMKGCP;

Instead of running a query with insert can i directly use this values in the report.
My problem is since my database has 10 tables(each for different building).  My report needs to use all 10 tables to get the values i need from each field.  As far as i know you can use only single recordsource.  How can i achieve this.  As i mentioned previously very new to access

My report setup:

Building:                ARDC     AMKC        GMDC   ............                                   Total


Type of Orders
# Of Formulary
# Of Nonformulary
Total Orders


# Of Orders
Keep
Detox
Total Orders


So i have it set up like this.

Say for building AMKC:  I need to put the totaled value i mentioned above in the # Of Formulary.  Is it possible to sum here instead of writing separate query.

You can use a domain aggregrate function as the control source for a textbox tbxAMKCC71:

=DSum("overnight+dayshift+eveningshift","tblAMKCC71")

then for tbxAMKGCP

=DSum("overnight+dayshift+eveningshift","tblAMKGCP")

and so on.  Does this help?

Is it possible to combine both tables field values into one since I want AMKCC71 and AMKCGP into the tbxAMKC  There is no tbxAMKCC71 and tbxAMKCGP.

tbxAMKC control source.

=DSum("overnight+dayshift+eveningshift","tblAMKCC71") + DSum("overnight+dayshift+eveningshift","tblAMKGCP")

Thanks, glad I could help.
