Access07 - Report - Unbound textbox in Report Footer #Error but when in layout view it's not

Hello all

Been away a few day.

I have a "Report" that I designed that when I'm in Preview or Form view mode an unbound Textbox shows me the total from it's control source formula...


However, when I "Preview" the form I'm getting #Error......  Is there a 07 bug or am I missing something??????

What is the control source of the unbound textbox?

=[txtEOD1]+[txtAtLastPull1]+[txtAtCurrPull1]

those three textboxes are in the Report footer as well.  Individually they all show amts.... but when I add them in the other textbox #error (if I put them in the control source of one textbox as a formula I get #Error)
=[sRpt_MachPull_ReconcileEOD].[Report]![txtEODSincePullTtl1]
=[sRpt_MachPull_ReconcileLastPull].[Report]![txtAtLastPullTtl1]
=[sRpt_MachPull_ReconcileCurrentPullTime].[Report]![txtAtCurrentPullTtl1]

Any chance of seeing a sample copy of your database?

<<   =[txtEOD1]+[txtAtLastPull1]+[txtAtCurrPull1]    >>

You might have to replace those textbox names with their equivalent expressions based on the underlying table fields.

As to why it would fail in Print Preview... it may have to do with the timing of when those textboxes are available.  For example controls in the detail section of a report are not available until the Detail Print or Detail format events.

(But I'm just speculating here.)

Stripping out a small version might be next to impossible......and whole I think will be too large to upload...

The timing is the conclusion I was coming up with too........  

I will see if I can whittle the db down for upload

Two parts FE/BE.... the Report is rpt_MachPull

BUT before you open that in forms... open frm_AAASetVariables

and put in an EmpID=2 ShiftID=39 UserID=2 and Date 1/2/14

You can also try replacing those textbox names with expressions based on the actual fields.

Depending on how the report is configured (main report, subreports, etc) you may need to use DLookups or similar to get the needed fields.

OK...

All of those "Text7" texboxes need their control sources changed so that they are using fields from the cross tab query as opposed to the textboxes on the previous subform.

This is an example of how ONE of them works:

=DSum("[1]","Ctabqry_LVLInfoDetails_CurrentPull","BusDay = #" & [BusDay] & "#")

Give it a try for the others....

Once you have those Text7's working properly, I  *think* the other totals will fall into place.

Get #Error on my
=IIf(IsError(DSum("[1]","Ctabqry_LVLInfoDetailEODSinceLastPulll","BusDay<=#" & [BusDay] & "#")),0,DSum("[1]","Ctabqry_LVLInfoDetailEODSinceLastPull","BusDay<=#" & [BusDay] & "#"))

And on

=IIf(IsError(DSum("[1]","Ctabqry_LVLInfoDetails_AtLastPullTime","MaxBusDay=#" & [BusDay] & "#")),0,DSum("[1]","Ctabqry_LVLInfoDetails_AtLastPullTime","MaxBusDay=#" & [BusDay] & "#"))

I added [BusDay] field in header of rpt_MachPull................

Tried both without the [] around the 1 also... same result
