In an Access database, I have fields (datatype = dbl) named "length", "height", and "sqrfeet". In my vb code I'm doing calculations to figure the square footage by multiplying the length * height divided by 144. The formula works just fine, but when adding the record to the database the length and height are added, however the square footage calculation is not getting added. I assign the result of the calculation to the text box which is databound to the sqr. feet field in the database. Any ideas where the bug might be??? I'm using Visual Basic 2008.
