I'm an access beginner and I've been converting the charitable contributions ms template. I'm running into an issue with one of the forms. The form had a text box with a calculated expression that read =CCur(Nz(DSum("[Amount]","Donations","[Campaign] = " & Nz([ID],0)),0)) . I didn't think I needed the other expression since the text box is formatted for currency. I followed a tutorial on https://theaccessbuddy.wordpress.com/2013/1...ing-a-criteria/ What I ended up with was =DSum("[Amount]","[Grants]","[Project]='" & [Project] & "'") I'm getting either #Name? or #Error and I have no idea why. The expression is pulling info from the [Grants] table and the forms source is from the [Projects] table. The form has 2 tabs a [Details] tab and a [Grants list subform] tab. Could the second tab be the issue since they are both pulling info from the same table?

Part of your issue might be the naming conventions you are using. I suggest you check out Fully Qualified Naming

One of the first things to look at, in this kind of thing, is the Where Clause. Is Project defined as Text or as a Number/Autonumber? The syntax

"[Project]='" & [Project] & "'"

is only correct if it is defined as Text. If Project is Numeric it'd be

"[Project]=" & [Project]

Hope this helps!

The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
