I have a report with several unbound fields.  For each field I want to use a certain field from a query.  Each field's result comes from a separate query.

So then in the VBA code, for each field, would I have something like this in the onprint event?

Me.Unboundfield1 = Queries!qryname.fieldname

I've tried this but get an error:  Object required

From your description, the query has only one record (?)

Me.Unboundfield1 = DLookup("fieldname", "qryname")

Or simply set the controlsource property of the textbox to

 = DLookup("fieldname", "qryname")

Both seem to work.  Since I have several fields on the report would one method perform better than the other?

I generally prefer the control source method over code in reports (but that is just personal preference - I don't think the performance would be different for either.
