I am trying to create a calculated field in Microsoft Query.

Pallets: Qty/Pal_Amnt

Returns - Syntax Error.

Qty/Pal_Amnt

Returns - Too few parameters. Expected 1.

???

Also, when I "Return Data to Microsoft Excel", I get a different layout.

You can't assign column header in MS Query this way. Set calculated value to Qty/Pal_Amnt, doube click on it and add Title:MS Query

You can also directly edit SQL:

Thank you.  Both ways presented work and I used the SQL method to change SUM to COUNT which gave me the result I wanted. I am so glad to have experts-exchange at my disposal since the 'experts' I work with have no idea how to help me. Even instructors at a local computer training school can't help. If the problem isn't in their workbook, forget it.
Thanks again.

While Qty/PalAmnt originally returned an error message, I switched computers and the equation worked somewhat magically. Now I understand that Excel doesn't always perform as it should.
