You will need to test if either the Fields.FirstNumber or Fields.SecondNumber is null/nothing before doing the assignment.


Dim firstNumber as Integer
Dim secondNumber as Integer
Dim thirdNumber as Integer

firstNumber = 0
secondNumber = 0

if (Not Fields.firstNumber is Nothing) then firstNumber=Fields.firstNumber)
if (Not Fields.secondNumber is Nothing) then secondNumber=Fields.secondNumber)

thirdNumber=firstNumber + secondNumber
