I have a simple equations that if a text box equals zero value then the "Closed" check box equals true to show that the order is closed.

Although if I ship 5 in the day close the form then re-open it later in the day the code works. I assume this is some kind of requery or refresh error. I've tried different variations of the requery and refresh without any luck.

Then you should get the desired results.
