for example
i have count of 100 numbers and i want to forcast for this month
what i am doing in or access manually is
trend = (100/day of the month)*no of days in a month
like
trend = (100/6)*30 = 500

in access sql

select  (100/Day(Date()) * DaysInMonth(Date())) as trend
from tableName


you need this function (place in a module)

Function DaysInMonth(MyDate)

   ' This function takes a date as an argument and returns
   ' the total number of days in the month.

   Dim NextMonth, EndOfMonth

   NextMonth = DateAdd("m", 1, MyDate)
   EndOfMonth = NextMonth - DatePart("d", NextMonth)
   DaysInMonth = DatePart("d", EndOfMonth)

End Function
