In Access 2007 I need to enter raw test data into tables, perform complex calculations including linear trends, then store the calculated results. These are the only numbers I really care about. The raw test data could be deleted for all I care, I just need the calculated results. I will need to run queries and generate reports from this calculated data. How do I set up the tables that will hold the post-calculation data?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could use Make table queries to do your calculations. This would perform the calculations and make the Post-Calculation tables at the same time. Keep in mind that each time you run Make Table queries, the destination table is always deleted first. Otherwise, make the tables first and then append the calculated rows into those tables. Then you have the option of deleting prior calculated data or appending new calculated data. Your reports and queries can then run from those post-calculated tables.
