I am trying to actively set the value of an unbound field based upon the value of another field:

Set Me!Name = queries!qryTeamName where Me!NameID = queries!qryTeamID

I can't do this in the underlying query do to inner join violations.

Is there any way to get this done, or do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks,

tcoc

For this normally a DLOOKUP is used.
Syntax:
=DLOOKUP("Teamname","qryTeamname","Me!NameID="&me.teamid)

This assumes that the field teamid is (hidden?) on the report.

Nic,

You da Man!  I forgot to try that - duh!

TeamId is hidden in the report.

Working syntax = DLookUp("Name","qryTeam","TPM=teamid")

Thanks for quick response too!
