Access 2010 report with a calculated field

Microsoft Access 2010

I have a report.   Two of the fields are [Price] and [Quantity]

In the report,  I have added a textbox  whose name is "Total Price"

I would like to have that textbox  contain the value [Quantity] * [Price]  for each record as if it were stored data.

Can this be done?

I tried this

Record_TotalCost.ControlSource = Me.[Quantity] * Me.WholeSale_Price_at_Invoice_Date

I put this code in my  Report_Load event.  When it runs, the code produces an error (see attached pic)

Me.[Quantity] does evaluate to                      2
Me.WholeSale_Price_at_Invoice_Date does  evaluate to          3

I did.   The name of my textbox was Record_TotalCost .  

Therefore,  unless I'm mistaken,  I've done just that.

Record_TotalCost.ControlSource = Me.[Quantity] * Me.WholeSale_Price_at_Invoice_Date
I didn't mention any code.
Just set the controlsource directly  (and don't use 'me.')

You were right!

I didn't use the "equal" sign.  That makes all the difference.
