What is wrong with this code?

    If DSum("[Qty]", "tblFinGoods", "[PartN] = '" & Me.txtPart_No & "'") > 0 Then
        txtAppliedInvQty = InputBox("Excess inventory exists for this part number. Qty = " & DSum("[Qty]", "tblFinGoods", "[PartN] = '" & Me.txtPart_No & "'") - DSum("[AppliedInvQty]", "tblOpenOrders", "[PartN] = '" & Me.txtPart_No & "'", [Complete] = False) & ".  Enter the qty you want to apply to this order:")
    End If

Everything was good until I added the -DSum part.

The "-DSUM()" part you mention has too many parameters; there should only be three.  My guess is that you want:

-DSum("[AppliedInvQty]", "tblOpenOrders", "[PartN] = '" & Me.txtPart_No & "' AND [Complete] = 0")
