kellyputty,

Assume you have a textbox called: txtSales

-Make a new textbox.
-Set the control source of this new textbox to:
    =[txtSales]*100

Kelly,

Just a note here.

Things like this are better handled in the Reports RecordSource.

In other words you should base the report on a query.
The query will contain a "Calculate Field" that performs your needed math.

For example:
SELECT Sales, SaleDate, SalesPerson, [Sales]*100 AS Sales100  FROM tblSales

This way the calculated field is available when you create a Report or form.

This way you do not have to create it over and over again for each new Form or Report.
