Dear all experts,

I write a function in access and place it in module, let say:

fx_ReturnNumber (strTemp as string) as string
  Dim strTemp2 as string

  strTemp2 = strTemp & " -  Hello World"
 
  fx_ReturnNumber = strTemp2
End Function

If I can bind about function to my query, the result of the query will look like that

ABC - Hello World
CDE - Hello World
EEF - Hello World
...
..
..
..
XZX - Hello World

I've some query and want to use this function but I cannot include it, does anyone tell me how to accomplish this?  Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say "I've some query and want to use this function but I cannot include it". Do you mean that you get an error? To use a custom function in a query you do it this way:

CustomFunctionName([fieldname])
