Function Help

I have a form that contains 2 other subforms.  The main form's fields list doesn't contain the field that i need to do the calculation.  The field i need is in a query..so when i try to put this on the main form, inside a txtbox's control source =avg([QueryTable]![QueryField]), it just gives me #name.
Anyway around this?

RE: Function Help

You could create a function in the Modules TAB

How well do you speak VBA?

Public Function FunctionName(Value1,Value2)

        'Do your calculations here
        'or Look up data in any table(s)

         FunctionName = Some value ' < This is a must. The function name has to be passed the final answer

End Function

Call your function from an unbound textbox on your form like so:
Textbox to have calculation. =FunctionName(Me!Text,Me!Text2)
Make sure your Textboxes name that recieves the calculation is different than any other textbox on any form.

If you are more specific about your formula I can write you a complete function.  


Ask me how Bar-codes can help you be more productive.
