    program a text box in a report!

    Here is my example:

    I am trying to set the value of a text box based on the "Age" field in MyQuery. I have the textbox's Control Source set to =MyFunction(). The report's record source is MyQuery. Here is my function:

    Public Function MyFunction() As String
    If [MyQuery.Age] = "100" Then
    MyFunction = "This guy is old!"
    End If
    End Function

    I just don't know the syntax to reference the age field.
    I tried [MyQuery].[Age],[MyQuery]![Age],[MyQuery].[Age].Value, etc...

    Is MyQuery a query and if so is the report based on it?
    If not is it open when the report is opened?

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
