Not sure if this can be done using OOTB webparts. I have a list and i want to use webparts to display a master detail view. But i need a text box in one of the a webparts so that users can type in an input value and then pass the value to a calculated column to perform some calculation. Is this possible with OOTB webparts? I have used OOTB webparts for the view but it seems there is no way to have a textbox with connections. Any ideas?
From the sounds of it, you'll want to look at Data View Web Parts (DVWPs). By manipulating the XSL in a DVWP, you can do pretty much anything, including creating customized displays and forms.
