Another way, from the form/report design view:

=DLookup("[Current Balance]", "[Query3]")

This likewise assumes there is only ever a single result.

Another way, when you can create an expression right in the text box:

Save that SQL as a saved query ... lets call it qryCurrBal.

Then, in the Text box Control Source, do this=

=DLookup("[Current Balance]","qryCurrBal")

including the equals sign.
