I have a calculation..  DSum("[Qty]", "tblFinGoods", "[PartN] = '" & Me.txtPart_No & "'") in an after update event of a field combobox.  I want the result of this DSum calculation to be embeded in a message box..     Kind of like...

"You have 000 parts in stock".   (The "000" is the calculation from the DSum.)

How can I do this?
