I'm trying to get my DSum formula to work but it doesn't seem to want to. I'm using the criteria with formatting to 'mmm-yy' but it doesn't seem to work. Can anyone shed any light on the problem?

=DSum("fqtyrecv","qryPOHistory","Format([fdaterecv],'mmm-yy')=#" & Format([Forms]![sfrmPurchaseAnalysisPOHistory]![txtMonth1],'mmm-yy') & "#")

Try this:


=DSum("fqtyrecv","qryPOHistory","Format([fdaterecv],'mmm-yy')='" & Format([Forms]![sfrmPurchaseAnalysisPOHistory]![txtMonth1],'mmm-yy') & "'")

NOTE: Format convert your values into strings!!!
