See my VBA below.

I have not used this before.

When I compile the "Enabled" bit is highlighted with an error "Invalid Use Of Property".

Is my syntax wrong??
I have tried different combinations but no joy!
Private Sub Form_Current()
If tblCustomers.OverrideYN = "Y" Then Me.OverRidePrice.Enabled
Else
Me.OverRidePrice.Locked
End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Try this to see if it's what you want.

Private Sub Form_Current()
If tblCustomers.OverrideYN = "Y" Then
Me.OverRidePrice.Enabled = true
Else
Me.OverRidePrice.enabled = false
End If
End Sub

You can say
if x then ...
because that gets interpreted as
if x is true then....

But when assigning values an ' = True/false'  must be used.
