This seems like it would be pretty easy however I don't have much experience in forms.  I'm trying to create a form to display our prices depending on what fields are chosen.  I have 3 tables, Quantity, Stock, and Flavor.  Each table has a key field, a description field, then a number field.  What I'd like to do is display the description field as a combo box for all three tables, then calculate the number fields for those tables off of the description field chosen. So I could display the total amount at the bottom with only showing the description fields as the selectors.

Look at sample Northwind database, which is included in Access.
Could you give tables structure and expected result (in Excel, for example)?

"as a combo box for all three tables"  -  maybe a combo box for each of the three tables?
