Issue with running total in an access form

Posted on 2013-10-28

I have a seemingly simple issue with the attached form in access

currently the form "frm_qry_tbl_visa_imports" has a total text field that calculates the totals of "Amounts".

I am trying to make it so that it only does a running total of the records where "Assigned" is check as somebody checks them. So if none are checked, the total should be zero.

Use this in your Total Selected text box control source:


In your Assigned checkbox On Click event enter this:


That should update the total as the boxes are checked.
