I currently have frm_main & frm_incoming

frm_main got 2 buttons:   1. incoming, and 2. outgoing

onClick of incoming, in_or_out (unbound label) =       Me.in_or_out = "incoming"
onClick of outgoing, in_or_out (unbound label) =       Me.in_or_out = "outgoing"

------------------------------------------------------
The problem:
-------------------
on open of frm_incoming:

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    If Forms!frm_main!in_or_out = "outgoing" Then
    Me.Label129.Caption = "123"
    End If
End Sub

This code works, but only on the 2nd click of "outgoing" button

Is there a way to get it right from the 1st click?

Thanks

Maybe try the Form Load event:


Private Sub Form_Load()
    If Forms!frm_main!in_or_out = "outgoing" Then
    Me.Label129.Caption = "123"
    End If
End Sub

If in_or_out is a label, try this code in the current event.

Private Sub Form_Current()
    If Forms!frm_main!in_or_out.Caption = "outgoing" Then
    Me.Label129.Caption = "123"
    End If
End Sub

Sincerely,
Ed
