drawing a blank on the best way to display a running total.

I want to have the field MCF Paid refresh its value when the user enters a NetAmount on a new invoice Datasheet (subform)

I have tried dsum, Recalc, change focus back to mainform and recalc - all without success.

What am I missing.

Best way is to put a control in the subforms footer (you can set the footers visible property to No).  Give it a name txt_MCF_Paid_Total

Set the control source of that textbox to something like:

=SUM([MCF Paid])

Then in the main form, set the control source of the control where you want to display that value to (change the names to match yours):

=Forms!yourMainFormName!subformControlName.Form.txt_MCF_Paid_Total

Try adding an after update event in the NetAmount  textbox in your subform to change the value displayed in the main form

Something like:-

Private Sub TxtBoxName_OnChange()

Forms!MainFormName.MCF=DSum("fieldname","tablename","idfield=" & Me.ID)

fieldname and tablename are the name of the field and table that contains the net amount.
idfield is the id that links the main form and the subform.
