What is wrong with:

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum("[ShippedQty]", "tblReady", "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID) And ("[Bay] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay)

Sum qty where

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum("[ShippedQty]", "tblReady", "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID) And ("[Bay] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay)

and

("[Bay] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay)

the subform subfrmReady is a subform in frmPlanted

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum

(

     "[ShippedQty]",
       "tblReady",
        "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID

)

And ("[Bay] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay)




i dont get it, i think you want this instead

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum

(

"[ShippedQty]", "tblReady", "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID & "[Bay] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay

)

If [Bay] is a Text field:

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum("ShippedQty", "tblReady", "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID) & " AND [Bay] = '" & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay) & "'")

Open in new window


Note I changed some of the syntax as well - I added an ampersand and double quote just before the AND keyword. I also removed the square brackets from ShippedQty, since it's already enclosed in double quotes.

Both ShippedQty and Bay are numeric.  

This does not work...

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum("[ShippedQty]", "tblReady", "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID & " And [Bay] = " & chr(34) & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay & chr(34) & ")"

"Expected list separator or )"  error

going back to my recommendation from yesterday and numerous times in the past.  Split your criteria out of the domain function, so that you can test it.

strCriteria = "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID) _
                   & " And [Bay] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay
debug.print strCriteria
Me.txtShippedQty = DSum("[ShippedQty]", "tblReady", strCriteria)

That should work, if [bay] is numeric.  Use the following if it is text:

strCriteria = "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtReadyID) _
                   & " And [Bay] = '" & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady!txtBay & "'"

Are these values you're trying to get to on a Subform? If so:

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum("[ShippedQty]", "tblReady", "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady.Form!txtReadyID & " And [Bay] = " & chr(34) & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady.Form!txtBay & chr(34) & ")"

You must add the Form qualifier after the subfrmReady - and also be sure that "subfrmReady" is the name of the Subform CONTROL on frmPlanted. Access will name them different things, depending on how you insert the control, so be sure of that.
"Expected list separator or )"  error
You don't need the & and "" around the last parentheses:

Me.txtShippedQty = DSum("[ShippedQty]", "tblReady", "[ReadyID] = " & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady.Form!txtReadyID & " And [Bay] = " & chr(34) & Forms!frmPlanted.subfrmReady.Form!txtBay & chr(34))

That last parentheses is the mate to the first open parentheses immediately after DSum ...
