Experts,

I have a formula in Excel that works:

="1/"&TEXT(B2/B3/100,0)&" of 1%"
and I converted it to a unbound text box as follows but I dont belive the TEXT function is applicable in Access? I get a #name:
="1/" & Text([[tblLetterOfCredit].[Amount]/[tblfees.Amount]/100,0) & " of 1%"

Any suggestions?
