DCount in Bound Field

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])
Microsoft Access

"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.
