avg calc on microsoft form

Hello
attached database-
open database- form opens
click button- enter [101] for item code and [jim] for name.
A form displays- I want to code the unbound textbox-
Have tried =DAvg("[Time Spent]","Table1", [Item Code]='" & Me![Item Code] & "'')
( receive error "expression you entered has invalid string")

the avg time spent displays the avg time jim ( or anybody you select) spent-
I want the total avg time spent- to display average time for everbody- on the item code selected

thank you-

I cannot open your database (corporate policy).

Are you certain the [Item_Code] field in your table is  a string, and not numeric?  If numeric,
try:

 =DAvg("[Time Spent]","Table1", [Item Code]=" & Me![Item Code])

Couple of things...
You can't use 'me' in a controlsource expression.  It has to be the full form reference.
Some of your quotes were awry.

=DAvg("[Time Spent]","Table1","[Item Code]='" & [Forms]![form2]![Item Code] & "'")
