Acess, Field in Form View not calculating on key enter

Posted on 2011-03-09

I have a field named [Cost 1] with the following property  =[JCOST1]/(1-[MUP1]) where I enter a value into [JCOST1] which is then divided by the value I enter into [MUPI1].  In my earlier version of Access when I entered a value in [JICOST1] the value in [MUP1] would instantly appear when I clicked "Enter".  In Access 2010 it doesn't; I have to page up two or three records and then back to the new record for the calculation to take effect.

Any suggestions?

Although you should not have to ... you may need to use Me.ReCalc in the Afterupdate Event of those two text boxes where you are entering values ... eg:

Private Sub JCOST1_AfterUpdate()
   Me.ReCalc
End Sub

Kindly check your statement for you might want to appear the value automatically to [Cost 1] not [MUP1]?

If you are really referring to MUP1, then there might be a code or macro in the enter event of [JICOST1]  that trigger to display the value at [MUP1] which might not be supported by 2010.

Being that I don't know anything about code, at first I copied the entire code into the space and kept getting an error.  Finally I just copied the middle line of the code and it worked perfectly.  Thank you very much for your assistance.

You are welcome.

Sorry ... I should have noted ".. which will look like this ..." ... ie, just enter the one line of code.
