It is the first time I use an adp project (access 2003 front-end and sql server 2000) and I have a lot of suprises, because things I normaly did in Access, does not work anymore :

eg In the OnOpen event of a form, I regulary set the value for a textfield on the form
say txtfield (bound to a table) is txtUserName.
Then I set this as follows:
Me.txtUserName = gbl_UserName  
(where gbl_UserName is a global that is initiated at start-up)
Me.txtUserName = "Bill"
This to avoid that users need to enter this value.
When I try this in my adp project, I get an errror "you can't assign a value to this object....."

I would be very pleased if someone could tell me how I can solve this problem.
