Percent markdown caluclation on datasheet

I have a datasheet form that I need to do some calculation on, the control source is a query qryEdit.  There is a  SellingPrice which has a value in it, a ShowPrice which will be a minus percentage of the SellingPrice  column. For example if the sellingPrice is $100 and the Showprice is -10% of the sellingPrice , the value in the Showprice  would be $90.00. I would like to have the user enter the value, in this case 10,  in a column PrctMakDwn and have it calculate the Showprice and place the marked down value in that column. The percentage will vary for different items, Is that possible?

Yes, you can do any calculation in after update event for your fieds (sellingPrice and PrctMakDwn)
Me.Showprice = Me.sellingPrice*(1 - me.PrctMakDwn)
In this case PrctMakDwn should have percent field format (if it will be double, divide it to 100)

Worked perfectly, Thanks. One quick followup, is there a way on the datasheet that you can bulk copy and paste similar to excel when you fill in a cell you can drag that value down to the rest of the cells?

Forget my last question regarding the cut and paste, even though it looks like a spread sheet it is a database and that would be against normalization and bad design. so thanks again for the quick response
