Using Fields to Calculate Values

Sometimes you need to perform a minor calculation before you can enter a value in a field. Microsoft Dynamics NAV allows you to enter an expression and calculate the value directly in many of the fields in the program.

To Calculate Values in Fields:

  1. Enter an expression in the field.

    You can use the following symbols:

    + (plus)

    - (minus)

    * (times)

    / (divided by)

    The symbols can be combined, but you cannot use parentheses, so you must be careful about how you set up the computation. Multiplication and division will be done before addition and subtraction. You can also perform several calculations in the same field.

  2. Press Enter, and the program will calculate the value and enter the result in the field.
