    Good Day to all Expert

    I've been developing a program in visual basic 6.0 for my mother, I'm building a Database for the Information Records.

    My Problem is i can't continue my project , im stuck on calculations of this area. So im posting here maybe somebody will help me for this.

    Please take a look this image

    I'm using a DBgrid to see contents populating from my Database Table using MS-Access.

    The image above is only an example which i have to make in VB soon.

    I need a code for calculating this

    Example: RETURN + RETURN + RETURN and so on.. = Total in Textbox New + New and so on... = Total in textbox

    Note: Im not using a Number for this Im using a word/string. Eg. Return etc.

    Thanks in advance

    Regards Neil

    Hi Neil,

    You should loop through the grid and check the content of each cell.

    dim lngNew as long
    dim lngReturn as long
    lngNew = 0
    lngReturn = 0
    For i = 1 To Grid.Rows - 1 Step 1
        if grdDetails.TextMatrix(i, 1) = "New" then
        	lngNew = lngNew + 1
        elseif grdDetails.TextMatrix(i, 1) = "Return" then
        	lngReturn = lngReturn + 1
        end if
    next i
