Display unbound text box with calculated data in report

Display unbound text box with calculated data in report

Hi there,

I have a report which includes two unbound Text Boxes. The unbound boxes are programmed to calculate a future date based on data entered in a bound text box. I am looking for a solution to display the data in the unbound boxes in a report. Please help!

RE: Display unbound text box with calculated data in report

I prefer doing the calculations in the underlying query instead of in an unbound control. Then bind your two text boxes to calculated fields in the query.
Can you provide the calculations and the name of the currently bound field.
You can also just make a calculated control in an unbound textbox, but I find that often more difficult to trouble shoot.
