I have a field on a report, "txtSumMoldsMade" which I want to divide by a number on a subreport, "txtCount" and show the result in a field on the main report, "txtAverage"

How?

You can try this in as the Control Source for txtAverage:

=[txtSumMoldsMade] / (Reports!YourReportName!YourSubReportControlName.Report!txtCount)

Of course, if txtCount can be zero, then you will get #Error ... or if the subreport does not have any records.

Actually you can shorten that a bit:

=[txtSumMoldsMade]/[srpName].Report!txtCount

where srpName is the name of the sub-report on the report

Just noting that the syntax I post was correct and will work from anywhere.
