I have a Form with a SubForm.  

The Subform has a Time Selector.  It is comprised of 4 unbound textboxes.  the first 3 textboxes the user clicks a control button that is is functioning as and up or a down to increment by 1

The 4th text box also unbound is where I take the input by the user and combine it to get the time value

That textbox is [tbTime] On subform [frm_DataDetail]

The code which on the textbox of the Subform works is:


Now then I want to bring that time from the Subform over to the Main Form into another unbound textbox.

That Main Form's textbox is named [tbTimeInput]

I have keyed the following code which is not working.

All I Get is the #Name?

I have done the same Control Source formula to get data from a Subform to the Main Form for other numbers but since this is "Time" is there something else I must add?????

That textbox is formatted "Long Time"

That SubForm 4th Textbox is in the Footer if that makes any difference.
