Dear Experts:

I got an unbound text field on a form ...
.. that displays the number of occurrences in which the checkbox (chkAuthor) is checked off.

=DCount("[chkAuthor]";"tblArticle";"[chkAuthor]<>0")

It works correctly. How can I get Access to UPDATE this form field IMMEDIATELY after I have checked off another checkbox (chkAuthor).
Now I often have to move thru several records in the form till this field gets updated.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
