How to access data in a sub-report

I have a Report that uses a sub-report. Nothing fancy there. However I want to display one of the calculated values from the sub-report in the main report.

Getting the calculated value on a text box in the sub-report was no problem, but I have a hard time finding the syntax to access the value.

Thanks for any help.

The way to access controls on sub reports is as follows.  From the main report, if the sub report control is named SubRpt, (regardless of the name of the form object that is in the sub report control), and the name of the textbox on the subreport is txtName, its value is:

   Me!SubRpt.Form!txtName

From elsewhere, where you need to specifically name the main report whith the sub report on it, (say the main report is named 'frmBody'):

   Forms!frmBody!SubRpt.Form!txtName

or

   Forms("frmBody")!SubRpt.Form!txtName
