Access Asset Inventory Summation
Posted on 2011-10-09
I have an simple access database that I'm using the track inventory items. I have a table with four fields, the first is an auto numbered key field, then I have a "From" location field, a "To" location Field and "Quantity" field that tracks the number of units moved from the "From" location to the "To" location.
I'd like to be able to choose a location and have the database add the quantity delivered to a location and then subtract the quantity taken From that location to give me a total number of items at that location.
I've done this in excel simply have a "From Qty" column and a "To Qty" column. Then I multiply the From column by -1 to make it a negative number and add it to the To column which gives me the total number of items at any given location.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
