Can't get total field in form to update

Great Day, I have a form that calculates service items performed by a technician. Each time the user enters a service item and and associated cost or if he/she edits an existing cost, I want txtRepairTotal to update, but this does not happen until I move away from the record and then return. I have Do.Cmd.Requery "txtRepairTotal" in the AfterUpdate event, but it is not giving me the expected results. There is no change to txtRepairTotal.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

r/David

Perhaps I jumped the gun. What is the control source for txtRepairTotal?

Thank you BusyMama for reaching out, but the code did not work.

dgmg, the control source for txtRepairTotal is the sum of the individual repair cost - =(Sum([RepairCost])), and your code did work. Thank you much.

Everyone have a great day and an even finer day tomorrow!

you have to create a function that computes the total and call the function in the afterupdate event of
*service item
*associated cost
*existing cost
