We have a couple of complicated calculations being done within the view of SQL but the problem is that i would like to be able to use a field that i have calculated in another calculation into a new calculation.

See an example i have done below

Select FIELD1/FIELD2 as TOTAL COST
If I want to say a new field is total cost + 1 then I have to type in all the above then + 1 instead of
Total cost + 1


Thanks
