If, in a table, you have a field that is data type calculated, and one of the values is null, the calculation will not take place. If you try to use NZ in the calculated field formula, you get the error: The expression Nz([Qty])*nz([ItemValue]) cannot be used in a calculated column. Anyone else aware of this issue? And, is there a workaround? I wish there was some way to tell access, globally, to treat nulls as zeros in number fields.
