# Microsoft Access Calculated Query Fields

Performing Math in Query Fields

Q: How can I calculate the product of two values in a query? For example, I'm figuring out order details, and I need to multiply the unit cost times the quantity purchased to figure out the line total.

A: Performing basic math in a query is a piece of cake. To multiple two fields like you want to do, just create a new "calculated" field like this:

=LineTotal: UnitPrice * Quantity

Here is a FREE VIDEO TUTORIAL that will walk you through this topic in detail.

I teach the concepts in this free mini tutorial in my Access Expert Level 8 course. These are full courses - over 60 minutes in length each. I spend a lot more time going over how to do this, in addition to lots more tips and tricks.
