Experts,

I have a fee that is not calculating how I need it to calculate.  
I know what the problem is but not certain how to fix it.
I have many [Amount] that is disbursed on a [DisbRecdDate]
I need to calculate a Fee (CommFeeAmt_Calc)
The Day Count (see below) is what is the problem.

for example,
I have 10 disbursements and they are received on different [DisbRecdDate] dates.
I need to calculate the Fee based on the Day count from the previous [DisbRecdDate] to the current [DisbRecdDate] and multiply that Day Count times the current [Ending Balance].

[Amount]   [DisbRecdDate]     [EndingBalance]
10                   1/1/10                       10
5                     2/1/10                        15
10                    3/1/11                        25

Fee for the EndingBalance on 2/1/10 would equal
=[Ending Balance]*[Rate]*([Day Count]/360)
=15*[rate]*(2/1/10 - 1/1/10) / 360

in the attached, you can see Q.Disbursement.Day Count: [DisbRecdDate]-[DisbRQDate] is how I am handling it now but it is wrong.  I would need something like Day Count: [DisbRecdDate]- the previous [DisbRecdDate]

I hope it makes sense.  Let me know if you need additonal explanation.
Please see attached db and open Q_Available

thank you

Here is how to get the day count.
Then you can apply your rate and then the fee calculation.

Wow that is amazing.  Thank you Gustav.  You made easy work of that one.  


TrueDateCount: DateDiff("d",(Select Max(DisbRecdDate) From tblDisbursement_Amounts As T Where T.DisbRecdDate < tblDisbursement_Amounts.DisbRecdDate And T.Type=tblDisbursement_Amounts.Type),[DisbRecdDate])

Gustav,

I believe I need to tweak the formula.
