Hello,

I need to display a calculated value on a report that divides two fiels that are totals.  For example:

Total Age:  4      Total Count:  100
Averge Age:      25

Both the Age and Count are totals and need to divide these. How can I do this on an Access Report?

So, if the ControlSource for TotalAge =Sum([Age])
and the ControlSource for TotalCount = Sum([Count])

you could do this
AverageAge =Sum([Count])/Sum([Age])

If both of those values appear somewhere on your form they are probably  in textboxes  create a third textbox beside those two and in the control source type:

=txtTotCount/txtTotAge

use your actual control names in place of txtTotCount and txtTotAge.
