Hi,

I'm probably not able to do this with a calculated field but its worth a go.

I'm trying to calculate fields on a subform and store this figure on the main form.

Yes you can. It is the common way to bring a total for instance off a subform to a main form.
Use an event such as the ON Current to get the value (Me.subformname.Form.Controlname) and set the control value equal to it (bind the control to where you want it saved in table).

Just remember that in general it is not a good idea to store calculated values, or derivations of calculated values. Usuall better to create those on the fly as needed, eitherin a query or by using VBA.

That's probably the best way to do it, that is, calculating the values on the fly either on a report or form instead of storing them.
