Help with reports Detail_format

Hello, I'm trying to use the following to conditionally populate a txt box on a report.

I'm getting the error: you can't assign a value to this object

What is the method and syntax to do this sort of thing in Access VBA?


Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

    If CCur(Me.txt_ExtCostSubTotal) > CCur(50) Then
    Me.txt_Administration = 500
    Else
    Me.txt_ExtCostSubTotal = 0
    End If
     
   
End Sub

Those textboxes might be non updateable for a variety of reasons (can't tell from what you have posted).

Try creating two new textboxes, txt_AdministrationNew and txt_ExtCostSubTotalNew (make sure they appear in the same report section as the originals) and set their controlsource properties as follows, using the = signs:


For txt_AdministrationNew:

  =  IIf (CCur(Me.txt_ExtCostSubTotal) > CCur(50), 500, txt_Administration)
   

And for txt_ExtCostSubTotalNew:

   =  IIf (CCur(txt_ExtCostSubTotal) > CCur(50), txt_ExtCostSubTotal, 0)


And see whether those boxes show what you are looking for.
