Calculated field value will not appear until I click another field

I have a field on a form which is a calculated field.  The name of the field is "txtDraw1Interest"  The calculation is:

=([txtDraw1Amount]*[txtDraw1DaysOut])*[txtIntRateLoan]/100

But the calculated value isn't showing up in the field until I click on another field anywhere on the form.

I've tried an after update event on the last field data is entered into, "txtDraw1Date".  The code I tried is:

    Me.txtDraw1Interest.Requery

But it doesn't work.  I also tried it in a beforeupdate event.

If you are typing in the control (txtDraw1Date), then you are not changing the value, you are changing the text property of that control.  The "Value" of that control will not actually change until you leave that control via (Enter, Tab, or some click event outside of that control).

I am tabbing off the date field and Me.txtDraw1Interest is not updating until I click on another field.  So I wonder why tabbing off the date field isn't working?

On closer look, I see that the code in your control source does not reference txtDraw1Date, so what do you expect to happen?

Is one of the controls referenced in your statement:

=([txtDraw1Amount]*[txtDraw1DaysOut])*[txtIntRateLoan]/100

influenced by the data in txtDraw1Date?

You could try with:

  Me.Dirty = False

to save the entry.

The formula:

=([txtDraw1Amount]*[txtDraw1DaysOut])*[txtIntRateLoan]/100

Is the control source for

txtDraw1Interest

The event I have it in right now is in the afterupdate event of:

txtDraw1Date

But none of those fields have anything to do with txtDraw1Date?

Why would you expect the value to txtDraw1Interest to change if you make a change in txtDraw1Date?  That field (txtDraw1Interest) is only going to change if you change the value of one of the following controls:

txtDraw1Amount
txtDraw1DaysOut
txtIntRateLoan

The AfterUpdate event of txtDraw1Date will never fire.

AfterUpdate is related to user input, Thus - if at all needed - you should recalc/requery at the AfterUpdate event of the other textboxes.
