I am having trouble using DCount in a bound text field. Is this possible? I can use the following syntax to get the result in an unbound control in a query, but would like to place the results in a bound field in a table. Thanks.

Sets: DCount("SetsRepID","tblSetsDetail","SetsRepID = " & [StrID])

"in a bound text field. "
You mean on a Form ?

You can do this ... set the Control Source of an *unbound* Text box to:

=DCount("SetsRepID","tblSetsDetail","[SetsRepID] = " & [StrID])

Not completely sure what you   mean ...

 No it's not possible.  You'll need to set the control (or field that the control is bound to) in code from somewhere else.

You can also do this ... to set a Field in your table, using the Form Before Update event.

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate (Cancel As Integer)

me![YourFieldNameInTheTable] = DCount("SetsRepID","tblSetsDetail","SetsRepID = " & [StrID])

End Sub
