Is it possible to enter a numeric value in a form and have access save the value multiplied by 2 on it's table. Not having the actual value that was entered stored on any table... the saved value would be the number on the form times two.

Thanks!

Yes, create a field that is not bound to any field in the table. have a second invisible field that is bound to your actual field that you want value saved in. The on the form fields after update event use something like

If IsNumeric(Me.fieldname) then
    me.actualfield = me.fieldname*2
Else
   MsgBox "The value you entered is not numeric", vbOK, "Invalid Entry"
End IF
