# Calculation on a field

Hello,

On my first form I have a calcualation field ..I need to carry that field into my second form...All these fields are on the table.

I was told to use the same calculation on the second form but just add the table name in front of the fields as these fields are not on the second form.

Can it be done this way?  All these fields are on my first form:

=Nz([Total Initial:],0)+Nz([BC1Chng1],0)+Nz([BC1Chng2],0)+Nz([BC1Chng3],0)+Nz([BC1Chng4],0)+Nz([BC1Chng5],0)+Nz([BC1Chng6],0)+Nz([BC1Chng7],0)+Nz([BC1Chng8],0)+Nz([BC1Chng9],0)+Nz([BC1Chng10],0)

carry that field into my second form.
Carry the Calculation or carry the value?

If the value, then just reference the control itself?
For example, ...If the control that holds your calculation is named "txtBigCalc"
Then simply make the control source of a textbox in the second form:
=Forms!YourFirstForm!txtBigCalc

You will have to explain what you are doing here a bit more (and explain why...)
Is the second form a subform or a standalone form?

Hello,

I have an ending calculation on the first form that has to be the starting calculation on the second form..kind of like a ending balance and the second form is the beginning balance.

...Then you should be able to reference the "value" as I stated, something like this:
=Forms!YourFirstForm!txtBigCalc
