Access Textbox to show a total of a column of certain records

I would like to fill in a text box on a form with a query of something like this.  It will keep a tally of the data filled in with the records on the page.  I will have the tally refreshes after a record is updated or added within the form.

SELECT DISTINCTROW Sum([tblTABLE].[COLUMN]) AS [Sum Of COLUMN]
FROM tblTABLE
WHERE (((tblTABLE.ID)=[ID]));

I have this query working in a query.  But I wanted the form to perform a query such as this but limit the sum math to the records that match the ID from a part of the form.

I got this to work as well but this adds all columns in the table, again I only want a sum of records that match a criteria (ID from a place on the form).  =Sum([tblTABLE]![COLUMN])

Help please!  Thank you
