I'm trying to do a DSum using this control source but it isn't working.  What would the correct syntax be?

=DSum("[ReadyQty]","tblReady","[TextMNumber] = " & [Forms]![frmPlanted]![cboTextMnumber.Column(0)])

You don't need all the square brackets, but your syntax actually looked good.  Double check field names

Whoops - Guy is correct.  You need quotes.

But his Char(34) should be Chr(34)    -- no points please.
