A new DSum question

What is wrong with...

Me.txtFormsRkfd = DSum("[NumForms]", "tblPrintOrdTranx", "[DateEntered] between #" & Me.txtStart & "# AND #" & Me.txtEnd & "#", "[ProdPlant] = "'"CompanyName"'")

Again,

What did *you* try first to fix this?

Dis you follow the basic troubleshooting I outlined for you in your previous post?

You really should not just simply post your formulas and ask us to "Fix" them for you.

I've tried changing the single quotes and double quotes and can't resolve the issue.  The previous question today did not have the...

"[ProdPlant] = "'"CompanyName"'"

part in the code.

Well, the DSUM() function only accepts 3 parameters, and when you added the last part, you made it the 4th parameter by separating it from the rest by a comma.  Instead of doing that, you need to append that new criteria on to the end of the previously working criteria.

I'm sorry but I don't know what that means or how to do it.

Your new criteria looks good for prod plant.  Try separating it from the rest using AND instead of a comma.

Is CompanyName a variable, or do you just want to insert the name of the company inside single quotes?

Me.txtFormsRkfd = DSum("[NumForms]", "tblPrintOrdTranx", "[DateEntered] between #" & Me.txtStart & "# AND #" & Me.txtEnd & "# AND [ProdPlant] = 'CompanyName'")

or maybe

Me.txtFormsRkfd = DSum("[NumForms]", "tblPrintOrdTranx", "[DateEntered] between #" & Me.txtStart & "# AND #" & Me.txtEnd & "# AND [ProdPlant] = " & chr$(34) & strCompanyName & chr$(34))

This worked...

Me.txtFormsRkfd = DSum("[NumForms]", "tblPrintOrdTranx", "[DateEntered] between #" & Me.txtStart & "# AND #" & Me.txtEnd & "# AND [ProdPlant] = 'CompanyName'")

Thanks.

Yes, but the sequential steps for troubleshooting are still the same...

Remember you simple said here:
 "What is wrong with..."
You did not stated what you tried
You did not state what errors you got.
You did not state what "CompanyName" was...

<I'm sorry but I don't know what that means or how to do it.>
Dsum (like all aggregate functions) is fairly well documented in the help files.
...and on the web too:
http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/domain/dsum.php

Just an FYI...

Jeff,

To his credit, Steve *showed* what he tried (even though he didnt explicitly state it) and he came pretty close to getting it right independently.  That is the style he generally uses, and I think the questions can be read as "this is what I have tried ... what did I miss?".

Point taken

My point was that the original post just stated:
   "What is wrong with..."
There was no mention of:
what *else* was tried
what errors
what "CompanyName" was
What the expression was trying to do...
The part of the expression that was working (from the previous Q)

We all like helping Steve out, and he unusually posts good solid questions, ...but to me, this particular Q was a bit "thin" on those details.
;-)

I know that every once in a while a member will just be in a crunch and just need help ASAP...
;-)
