I have created a report in Access 2013.  On the detail I have a Text Box and a Command Button.  When the Command is clicked I want to perform an action based on the content of the Text Box.  How do I get the content of the Text Box???

You refer to a Textbox like this:

Me.NameOfYourTextbox

So if I wanted to popup a Msgbox:

Msgbox "Value is  " & Me.NameOfYourTextbox

However, on a Report, you will have multiple instances of the TExtbox, if you're referring to one in the Detail or Group sections of your report.

I'm referring to the one in the Detail Group.

for the following reason:

Reference an item in the Group band the same way you reference an item in the Detail band.

Wasn't that basically what I told you - that you reference the two the same way?
