Access Continuous Form Subtotal Textbox #Error

Hello experts!

I have a form with a subform.  The subform's info comes from a query.  In the Footer of the Subform I put an unbound textbox.

The continuous form's bound field is [AmtIn].  In the footer I put the formula
=nz(Sum([AmtIn]),0)

Everything works great EXCEPT when the query results in "No Records".  Then I get the dreaded #Error which throws every other calculated field on the Form to #Error.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a Access 2007 bug that was never fixed?

Have you tried Sum(Nz([AmtIn],0))?

I think you need to do the Nz bit before the sum not after.

How about basing the other controls which are based on the txt_Total control in the subform with a control source of something like:

=IIF(IsError(me.subformcontrol.form.txt_Totals), 0, me.subformcontrol.form.txt_Totals)
