I have a left joined query that contains a simple calculated field Nz([CERTIFIED_US_AMT]-Nz([DEOB_AMT]))  with field named "Total". The two tables are humongous (almost 5 million records each) but still only add up to 1.8GB so it within Ms Access limits. BUT, when I export it, the total column will not display as numbers. I tried to use the "convert to Numbers" feature with no success. Never had this problem before. Query is attached.

how are Totals displayed?

try changing this

Nz([CERTIFIED_US_AMT]-Nz([DEOB_AMT]))

with

FormatNumber(Nz([CERTIFIED_US_AMT])-Nz([DEOB_AMT]),2)

"when I export it, the total column will not display as numbers"

Yeah, I'm curious as well, ...unless one of your fields is a string and you are inputting text (ex.: 45b, X41), then you will get #error

But even if both fields were text and you only input numeric values, your formula should only output numbers.
