ERROR in Sum(Field1) in footer of continous form

Hi.  I have a simple continuous form  that contains several fields from a query as well as a few textboxes that do some calculations.  On my computer these fields Sum fine in the footer.  However, when I roll the program to the clients computer,  when I try to do a summary in the form footer, all I get is the #Error showing up.  I am just using a textbox with =sum(field1) on it.  I have a sum field for both the calculation textboxes and one of the bound fields.  I just can't understand why it's working on my system and not on the clients.  Any suggestions as to what I am missing?  Thanks!

Hi,

Go to the Visual Basic screen (Alt-F11).
Click 'Tools', 'References'.
Check if there are any missing links.

Broken references would give you the #error.
Maybe you have some references you don't need anymore
or maybe you have to install them with the client.

Success,
Robert

If you don't have the word "Missing:" on one of the references on the client's computer, Carefully check the date, time and size of every referenced file on the client's computer against the date, time and size on your computer to make sure the versions are the same.  With any that are different, copy the client's file to another folder (in case changing it causes other problems) and copy yours to the client's.

Other than that, are the OS and Access Versions and SP level the same?

Run access on the client's machine.
Create a blank db.
Import just the relevant form, query, tables ...from your db to client's db.

RUn and see:)

The OS is different on the client.  Client win 2000 sp4 vs mine win.srvr 2003 standard sp1.  Wasn't sure if that would really make a difference.  Access versions & sp levels are the same.  
I'm already going through all the referenced files to make sure they are the same.  Guess I was just hoping that I was not aware of something else that may be causing the problem.

thenelson - That was it.  Luckily I found it with the underlying query.  
hnasr - great idea.  I'll keep that in mind for the next time.  

Thanks all.

You're welcome.  When you stated, "That was it.", what exactly was 'it'?  Glad to help and thank you very much for the points with "A" grade!  

Happy Computing!

Sorry.  "Carefully check the date, time and size of every referenced file on the client's computer against the date, time and size on your computer to make sure the versions are the same.  With any that are different, copy the client's file to another folder (in case changing it causes other problems) and copy yours to the client's."  I just started comapring every file referenced on the clients computer and found the difference in the underlying query.
