    Assuming it's a continuous form in the form footer or header use

    =Sum(YourTextBoxControl)

    Aggregate functions cannot reference controls, only fields. So if the textbox has expression like: =Quantity * Price, the aggregate calc would have to repeat the expression: =Sum(Quantity * Price).
