How do I stop a form displaying #Error in text boxes

Hi there.  I have a form which uses some text boxes to display the latest date as derived from a field elsewhere in the form.  However, when the form is first opened (and displays a blank record), they display #Error, presumably because they're trying to work out a calculation for an empty record.  Is there any way of making the text boxes not display the #Error thing?

For example by the way, one of the text boxes is called Text44 and its control source is:

=(Nz(DMax("[DateCompletedAnnual]","tblAnnual","IDClient= " & [IDClient])))
