This probably gets asked all the time, but is there an equation that would allow me to enter a quantity in an item field and in the quantity total it would multiple that number by 8 or 12, etc.?

i.e. 1 six pack = 6 beers in the total?

Create a table, "Items," with a "UnitOfMeasure" field and a "QtyInPieceCount" field.

Items::UnitOfMeasure = pk

Items::QtyInPieceCount = 6

Items::UnitOfMeasure = ft

Items::QtyInPieceCount = 12

In your original table, use an auto-entered field or calculation field to multiple the quantity of units by the piece count value.

3pk = 18 or 2ft = 24 or 1pk = 6
