Need to assign values to text boxes.

Need to assign values to text boxes.

Need to assign values to text boxes.

I am a new user to access/vBA.  I have a script that prompts the user to enter a Student ID.  The Student ID that is entered is compared with all the students in the database and outputs in the form of a message box.  The problem is that I want to output these fields... (i.e. Student_Last_Name, Student_First_Name, Address) in separate text boxes.  I have created a new form with unbound text boxes and now I don't know how to adjust the code to ouput to the unbound text boxes... I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks!  I have pasted the code below:

Function Command0_Click()
'On Error GoTo Err_Command0_Click
    Dim retval As Variant
    retval = InputBox("Enter student ID", "Student ID", "")
    Dim db As Database, rst As Recordset, SQL As String
    Set db = CurrentDb
    ' SQL string.
    SQL = "SELECT * FROM Student WHERE Student_ID = '" & retval & "';"
    Set Student = db.OpenRecordset(SQL)
    If Student.RecordCount > 0 Then
        MsgBox "Found Student " & Student!Student_ID & " - " & " " & Student!S_L_Name & " " & Student!S_F_Name, vbInformation, "Found Student"
        MsgBox "Student ID " & retval & " Not found!!!", vbExclamation, "Missing student ID"
    End If
    Exit Function

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command0_Click
End Function

RE: Need to assign values to text boxes.

Figured out my own question... Thanks!
