Sorry Robbie Have not been able to devote time to this issue as busy
with some other non computer work.

But as Bruce has mentioned making calculations and displaying data at
the same time could be an issue.

On a side note why not store current inventory in a table.
My only app is a inventory and accounts control package.

I store the current inventory info in a different column. All pieces
sold are instantly deducted and purchased qty are updated.

So when I have to view current inventroy I just have to view the
required column data.
