Hi Experts,

Below is the statement that I use on a control source of a text box (It all works fine Thanks Experts),

=DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and [Payment type] =7")

My question is can i add to this to this;  to minus the result of another Dsum calculation such as...

"Fisrst part as above") - Dsum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and [Payment type] =6") and  or [Payment type] =5"))

Hope this makes sense.

ok ... well ...

"First part as above") - Dsum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]=" & Chr(34) & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & Chr(34) & " and ( [Payment type] =6   or [Payment type] =5"))

Chr(34) is a double quote - for clarity in posting.

Thx Mx

As per your previous I have:
=DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and [Payment type] =7")-DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]=" & '" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' & " and ( " & [Payment type]=1 Or [Payment type]=6 & ")")

Now I'm back to getting the #Error...

You changed what I posted and used Single Quotes.   Use what I posted.  I tried

Dim x

x = DSum("[money received]", "payments", "[contract id]=" & Chr(34) & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & Chr(34) & " and ( " & [Payment type] = 6 Or [Payment type] = 5 & ")")

and that compiles correctly.  So try:

=DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and [Payment type] =7")  -    DSum("[money received]", "payments", "[contract id]=" & Chr(34) & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & Chr(34) & " and ( " & [Payment type] = 6 Or [Payment type] = 5 & ")")

I need to zzzzzz ...

I have tried it as it was posted;

=DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and [Payment type] =7")-DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]=" & Chr(34) & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & Chr(34) & " and ( " & [Payment type]=6 Or [Payment type]=1 & ")")

I still get the #error.

=DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and [Payment type] =7")-DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" &  [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and  [Payment type]=6 Or [Payment type]=1")

or you can also use this


=DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" & [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and [Payment type] =7")-DSum("[money received]","payments","[contract id]='" &  [Forms]![contract payments]![contract Id] & "' and  [Payment type] In (6,1)")

Now if I can expand a little more and try and give you a picture for the end result I am looking for that I have tried to piece together over the last couple of questions, hope you guys can help.

Basically I am trying to calculate an end figure based on a couple of things firstly these are the types of payments that can be entered for each entry;
1 - Adj
2 - CCI
3 - CMV
4 - GAP
5 - Wty
6 - Rbt
7 - Bkg
8 - Com

Now to get a final figure for say GAP I could have a number of criteria such as;
1 - I could enter a money rec $700 for payment Type GAP
2- I could enter a money received as -$100 payment type Adjustment
3 - I could enter a money received as -$250 payment type Rebate

One big problem I face is that both payment types Rbt and Adj could relate to any of the other payment types so I could have a rbt that needs to be deducted from a GAP payment type as well as another enrtry for a Rbt against the CMV payment type.
Now the only other field that helps us determine which Rbt or Adj is for which is a company field that is in the master form and the subform.
 
Therfore I would want to acheive is a total of each payment type not incl Rbt or Adj, but for each other payment type that takes into account any rbt's or Adj related by the company field to each of the other 6 fields.

Does this make any sense.....

Hope you can help.

Sorry quick typo fixes....

Now to get a final figure for say GAP I could have a number of criteria such as;
1 - I could enter a money rec $700 for payment Type GAP
2- I could enter a money received as -$100 payment type Adjustment
3 - I could enter a money received as -$250 payment type Rebate

I would like the text box that I have the statement to date in to return a value of $350. for the above example...



Therefore I would want to acheive is a total of each payment type not incl Rbt or Adj, but for each other payment type that takes into account any rbt's or Adj related by the company field to each of the other 6 Payment Types.
