Adding calculated fields to tables
Access 2010 introduced the capability to add calculated fields to tables. In
earlier versions of Access, you were forced to create a query if you wanted
to calculate a field. Now you can simply name the new field in a table and
add an expression to calculate a result. Often, you want your calculated
fields to be in queries, but if you need a calculated field in a table, you can
define it there.
To add a calculated field, follow these steps:
1. Display the table in Datasheet view.
2. Click the text Click to Add in the last column in the table.
