I have a syntax issue with the folloing code using two criteria.  Can someone spot the problem?

Me.txtAvailQty = DSum("[IncomingQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", -"[SoldQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", "[ProductID] = " & [Forms]![frmInventory]![txtProdID], "[LocationID] " & [Forms]![frmInventory]![txtToID])

Me.txtAvailQty = DSum("[IncomingQty]", "tblInventoryDetails",  "tblInventoryDetails", "[ProductID] = " & [Forms]![frmInventory]![txtProdID] & " AND [LocationID] = " & [Forms]![frmInventory]![txtToID])

Sometimes it is easier to understand SQL Strings if you build them as a variable so you can see the results of your effort.

Dim strWhere As String
strWhere =   "[ProductID] = " & [Forms]![frmInventory]![txtProdID] & " AND [LocationID] = " & [Forms]![frmInventory]![txtToID])

Me.txtAvailQty = DSum("[IncomingQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", "tblInventoryDetails", strWhere)

PS -- I removed ---- -"[SoldQty] ", --- because I couldn't figure out what it went to.  It isn't the table/query name and didn't have any variable to compare to so it didn't look like it should be part of the where clause.

I have to have SoldQty because AvailQty - Sum of IncomingQty minus Sum of SoldQty

You can only get a single column from a domain function.

Is SoldQty in the same table as IncomingQty?  

There are two possible solutions and I don't know which will give you the answer you need.  Probably the second one since I suspect that each transaction would be in a separate record.

Me.txtAvailQty = DSum("[IncomingQty] - [SoldQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", "tblInventoryDetails", strWhere)

OR

Me.txtAvailQty = DSum("[IncomingQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", "tblInventoryDetails", strWhere) - DSum("[SoldQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", "tblInventoryDetails", strWhere)

This worked...

Me.txtAvailQty = DSum("[IncomingQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", "tblInventoryDetails", strWhere) - DSum("[SoldQty]", "tblInventoryDetails", "tblInventoryDetails", strWhere)

but I had to remove the double "tblInventoryDetails" in 2 place.   Thanks.

But your solution worked.  I just spotted the double "tblInventoryDetails".  At least I know how to do that.  Thanks again.  I appreciate your efforts.
