problem assigning value to text box in report on open

Hi. In my main report I have:

Page Header:
lblreports - Shows the monthly report heading which includes the month and year prompted for
txtMthYear - want this to contain the month and year prompted for so I can use it as a link between all the subreports

I keep getting an error message on the txtMthYear portion saying it cannot assign a value to this object but I dont' see why?


This is the on open event
  dteStart = Month(Date) & "/" & Year(Date)
    strStart = InputBox("Enter Start Date Range:", "Start Date (month/year)", dteStart)
    If IsDate(strStart) Then dteStart = strStart
    lblReportDates.Caption = " METER SHOP MONTHLY REPORT - " & Format(dteStart, "mmmm yyyy")    
    Debug.Print strStart
    Me.txtMthYear = dteStart     [b]======== Line I get the error on[/b] 
what am I doing wrong??
