Global  Function 2

Last Modified: 2013-11-29
I want to call a function from a report and not have to worry about putting any part of the calculation in the query like I always do.  It takes too much time.  I want to simply put the USDEquivFX in the name of the report and it calculates.  

I have a global function:
Function USDEquivFX(lngID As Long, dblAmount As Double, dblRate As Double) As Double

         If lngID = 1 Then
               USDEquivFX = dblAmount
               USDEquivFX = dblAmount * dblRate
         End If
End Function

Isnt there some way to use the Function calculation only (like USDEquivFX..FX is for Function) and not have to put *any* components of the calculation in the query design?  I have many reports that need I have to repeat with this calculation.  I only want to calculate in the function and be done with it and be able to call it anywhere.
