    Default Formula Problem

    In my database, I had used a field to contain a formula, like e.g.: 2 - 800. Using this field, I will do a calculation to a value, like for example: value * (field) so that it will be like value * 2 - 800.<BR><BR>But the problem is that the field is a string. So I encountered an invalid format error. Is this possible and I need to convert the string datatype into something else? Or I am doing this in vain? =""sukino
