hello experts I dont know if this is possible but I have  fields thatare check  marks

 once the field is checked I need it to equal a certain percentage which then is then totaled the check fields can all add up to100%'

For example:

Induction (with a check mark) =10%
Defuel(with a check mark)=20%


then as they continue to total up showintg the % until they finally show up to 100%



So do i nee d to make a module and  show what each check represents as a %  then have a text box with the codes of the  namesof the check mark with the sum code to get the percentage?

Something like this:

induction =10%
Defuel= 20%

(this in a text box) =DSumt("*","tblMODHistory","['Induction','Defuel')")

See attached. Field was added to form control source. Formula used:
Percentages: Format(Abs(([tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![Induction]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![Defuel]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![Turret ull]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![FuelCellRemoved]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![BFCSProvision]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![BFCSInstall]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![TurretInstall]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![DriversSeatSpacer]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![GunnersSeatStop]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![CEPRetrofit]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![25MM HotBox]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![E1GroundInsert]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![AFESCEPSwitchGuard]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![ReliefHoleExtinguisherGuard]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![EERHandleMod]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![QA/QC]+[tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![OutDuction])/17),"00.0%")

Open in new window

That field is control source for text box.

Thank you Flyster thanks for your help and your time

But I do have a couple of questions

1.How do I give each field a percentage value?
2. How did the field Percentages get on the form and I dont see it on the table?

You see every time the user checks one of the fields like defuel that is equal to 20% and then they may check Induction that equal 10% so the Total percentage of all the fields so far is 30%..

all these fields eventially add up to 100% once they have checked them all.

so where would I put this code would to put the value of each fields percentage?

How do I disquinquish which defuel i am talking about should i do it by production number?



or should  I just do a drop down with the percetage  value and then add them together

Which I did try but when i put .10 or .30 it defaults to zero on a lookup field

When a checkbox is checked, it has a value of -1. That's why I used ABS (Absolute) in the formula, it changes the value to a positve number. There are 17 checkboxes which is why the sum of the boxes is divided by 17. If you want each box to have a different value, you can assign the value in that formula as follows:

Percentages: Format(Abs((([tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![Induction] *10)+([tblTempleFuelcellOnly]![Defuel]*20 + ........../100,"00.0%")

Just make sure the 17 values totals 100

Books will get you just so far. I have learned a ton by just reading these posts. Work the problem, even if an answer was already accepted. Think of a "what if" problem and then work on it until you find a solution. Once you find a solution, see if you can find a different one. I'm glad I could help you out!

Flyster if your still out there. I know the percentages is a unbound code but where is the formula. I looked on the form maybe on current nothing. I looked on the propery sheet and I dont see it. I feel really dumb but I cant find the code.
