TempVars concatenation not working

TempVars concatenation not working

TempVars concatenation not working

Hello all.

I have a tempVar called TVarAddress

In a text box control source I have: = [TempVars]![TVarAddress]

The above works fine and returns for example "12 Cook Street"

I store all the TempVars names in a table.

I have a textbox on a form called TXTBOX1 which displays just the TempVar Name - ie. TVarAddress

I have another textbox called TXTBOX2 which has the control source set as:


I wanted this to display the TempVar Value(i.e. 12 Cook Street), but it does not.

I would appreciate any help. Thank you Mark

RE: TempVars concatenation not working

You can never use bang notation with variables.

This does not work

CODE -->

dim myControl as string
myControl = "textBox1"
msgbox me!myControl.name 

You need to use dot notation

CODE -->

msgbox me.controls(myControl).name 
That works

In your case tempvars.item(txtbox1)
And I believe since item is the default property you can just do
That is how you would do it in code, but not sure of the calculated control. Maybe
