    Wolf, I'll simplify it for you.

    I have a table.

    There is one field called customer price, and the data is numeric.

    There is another field called VAT Cost, which is also numeric.

    How do I make each record in the VAT Cost field be calculated by the corresponding record in the Customer Price field?

    e.g.) Record 1: Customer Price = £50.00

    Record 1: VAT Cost = £50.00 * 0.175

    How can I enter a function for this to happen in the table design?

    The main radiation you get off is EMF radiotatin (Magnetic Feild)

    Transformers, motors and cathode ray tubes give these off. The transformer in the PC is actually quite smaller, and the motors inside a PC are tiny so will give off virtualy nothing.

    The biggy is the monitor, I have never measured the amount of EMF from a CRT monitor but I am pretty sure it must be quite high knowing how CRTs work.

    If you have a TFT monitor then these give off virtualy nothing.

    what is that thing on your avatar?

    RSI, Eye Strain and unhealthy eating are bigger worries related to sitting at a computer than radiation. Your phone is more harmful then a monitor and even then its not /that/ harmful.

    Rest every hour remember ... pfft yeah right!

    Alpha radiation is not something to worry about either; unless ingested.
