Hi,

I have a field in a form that is computed.  The number id placed in this field is the next consecutive no.  This is now not working and @error is being placed where the id no. should go.
Any ideas?

What is the formula and field type ?

Probably you are substituting text with number data type, or the dblookups can cause this kind of problem.

So be specific.

Hi Lucret...

Select the Field and select from the menu : View - Programmers Pane.  You will now be able to see two new panes.

The Left pane would read  "Value" , "Options" , "Declarations" , "Intialize" and "Terminate" as its a computed field.

Select the "Value" and you should see the formula in the second pane to the right side of this pane.

Also, I suspect that this has a @DBColumn Formula for next number generation, that might have exceeded the limit and thats why an @Error is raised...

Let us know how we could help you!

-Arun.

The TRFNumber should be the name of the field itself or referring to another field.  Check if you have another field of that name.  Whats this fields name ?

The problem could be in the TRFNumber field formula. Similar to this field check its field value for formula.
