Setting Cotrol Source of Text Box (also under Access, sorry)

Setting Cotrol Source of Text Box (also under Access, sorry)

I'm trying to set the text in text box using the Control Source Property.  The text box is a header in a report, and I need this header to change depending on the date.  The function I want to use to return the text of the header is in a Standard Module called RFunctions.  The problem is, when I try to set the Control Source to say, RFunctions.GetFirstDate(), it gives me a syntax error.  If I just put the name of the function in Control Source say, GetFirstDate(), I get one of those damn #Na things on my report.  Any clue what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance
