I have a form created using a query where nine payments are tracked by date. My form is totaling the payments because of the following in the Control Source of the properties for the “Payment Total”: =[txt Payment1Amount] [txt Payment2Amount] [txt Payment3Amount] [txt Payment4Amount] [txt Payment5Amount] [txt Payment6Amount] [txt Payment7Amount] [txt Payment8Amount] [txt Payment9Amount]My problem is the table that should be updated when the form is closed is not picking up the total. jrtaylor jrtaylor, I think by your explanation that you have an UNBOUND textbox on your form.
