Yes. Set the datasource for that textbox to be =DSum("[Percentages]","Queryname").

thank you for your time and help! But the query

is embedded in the form in the record source . so I dont know what the name would be
I used

=DSum("[Percentages]","frmTempleFullUp:Query Builder")

i get  this   error? as an error.



if you have the time could you please look at my database and tell me what the name would  be,

in the record source of the form it has this

SELECT tblTempleFacilityFullup.Production, tblTempleFacilityFullup.InShopDate, tblTempleFacilityFullup.SerialNumber, tblTempleFacilityFullup.Unit, tblTempleFacilityFullup.Induction, tblTempleFacilityFullup.TearDown, tblTempleFacilityFullup.Provision, tblTempleFacilityFullup.E1GroundInsert, tblTempleFacilityFullup.ReliefHoleExtinguisher, tblTempleFacilityFullup.AssemblyA, tblTempleFacilityFullup.FuelShotOffSleeve, tblTempleFacilityFullup.AsemblyB, tblTempleFacilityFullup.CEPUpgrade, tblTempleFacilityFullup.AFESCEPSwitch, tblTempleFacilityFullup.AssemblyC, tblTempleFacilityFullup.ERRHandle, tblTempleFacilityFullup.DriverSeat, tblTempleFacilityFullup.AssemblyD, tblTempleFacilityFullup.HotBoxEnhanceMent, tblTempleFacilityFullup.AssemblyE, tblTempleFacilityFullup.LegacyBattery, tblTempleFacilityFullup.[LED/ERR], tblTempleFacilityFullup.T161Track, tblTempleFacilityFullup.AFES, tblTempleFacilityFullup.HotBox, tblTempleFacilityFullup.BASSM2, tblTempleFacilityFullup.GunnersSeatStopRework, tblTempleFacilityFullup.RoadTest, tblTempleFacilityFullup.QC, tblTempleFacilityFullup.OutDuction, tblTempleFacilityFullup.PercentageComplete, tblTempleFacilityFullup.DateCompleted, tblTempleFacilityFullup.DateReturned, tblTempleFacilityFullup.Remarks, Format(Abs(([tblTempleFacilityFullup]![Induction]*6+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![TearDown]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![Provision]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyA]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AsemblyB]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyC]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyD]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyE]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![RoadTest]*4+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![QC]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![OutDuction]*10)/100),"00.0%") AS Percentages FROM tblTempleFacilityFullup;

This way might be easier:

In the properties box for the form, click the button with three dots next to recordsource.

Then, add a field to the query, and you can have it do the calculations. Once youpen the querybuilder to do that, you should be able to see the names of your fields.

You can sum field directly (Procent fields were changed from text to numeric). Look at sample.
But may be better to use subform with results from query. Dlookups took too many time.

"frmTempleFullUp:Query Builder"
..is that the actual name of the table/query?

Try changing it to something without the special characters...

When I click on the record source to see the the query on the tab it has the name "frmTempleFullUp:Query Builder" .

I dont know how to change it because it doesnt show up as a query,on the Navigation under queries.

 I need the total of precentages from a field that is not in the table but was addd to  the query.
So when I put,
TotalPrentages:=DSum("[Percentages]","frmTempleFullUp:Query Builder")  
 error says cant find table or query.


When I go to save it to see what the name of the query is. It ask me if I want to save the record of the SQL statement? it doesnt tell me the name of the query.

Go to the record source box, and click the little button with three dots that you'll see at the right side.

When I click on the record source where the dots are on the right side the query opens up. on the tab it has the name "frmTempleFullUp:Query Builder" .

When I go to save it to see what the name of the query is. It ask me if I want to save the record of the SQL statement? it doesnt tell me the name of the query.

When I put it in a text box I get a error. It seems to me that you cant use DSum with a query but you can use a Dlookup but it doesnt total with a Dlookup. made a new query called qryTemple and tried this.

=DLookUp("[Percentage]","qrytemple"," [Unit ]= ('278th ABCT')") works but doesnt total
=DSum("[Percentage]","qrytemple"," [Unit ]= ('DRS TEST')") gives me a error everytime?

If you remove Format from your query:
Format(Abs(([tblTempleFacilityFullup]![Induction]*6+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![TearDown]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![Provision]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyA]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AsemblyB]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyC]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyD]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyE]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![RoadTest]*4+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![QC]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![OutDuction]*10)/100),"00.0%") AS Percentages
replace with:
Abs(([tblTempleFacilityFullup]![Induction]*6+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![TearDown]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![Provision]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyA]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AsemblyB]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyC]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyD]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![AssemblyE]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![RoadTest]*4+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![QC]*10+[tblTempleFacilityFullup]![OutDuction]*10)/100) AS Percentages
and dsum should work.

Try taking out the parentheses and brackets from this:
=DSum("[Percentage]","qrytemple"," [Unit ]= ('DRS TEST')")

Like this:
=DSum("[Percentage]","qrytemple"," Unit = 'DRS TEST'")

If that  doesn't work, also try taking out the single quotes from around DRS TEST.
