Get totals from another table Upload Images   Link 
David Wilcox

Once again, I must come and kneel before the master in search of wisdom. I have a main table that 'counts' the number of records and also 'sums' the total dollars at the bottom of the table. Is there a way to retrieve those two data items and show them in text boxes another form? For example, on my main dashboard form I'd like to be able to show a 'current number of records total' and a 'current contract value total' amount on the main dashboard form. As I mentioned, the table for that main dashboard form already totals those columns as needed. I just need to know 'if' and 'how' I can get those figures to populate text boxes I have set up at the top of my dashboard form so that the users can quickly see how many records and what the total value is currently when they open the database. As always, thanks for being the "Best in the Business" when it comes to teaching the 'unteachable' about Access! Live long and prosper!

Look at the DOMAIN Functions, DSUM, DCOUNT etc

Alex is correct... look at DSum. Start by learning DLookup. It's a close cousin, but easier to understand.

In fact, DSum is one of the only domain functions I haven't done a TechHelp video for. I've got them for DLookup, DCount, and DMax.  I know it's on the list somewhere... someone else asked me about it recently. Looks like I know what today's video is going to be... :)
