Can an expert tell me what is wrong with this syntax?

me.txtListingsTakenActual = Queries!qryTeamPerfRptListingsTaken.CountOfID WHERE "Listing Month" = me.txtMonthName AND "Listing Year" = me.txtYear

It looks like you are trying to run a query and place the results in a text box.  That isn't how it works.  A query returns a recordset.  It doesn't return a string.  Your syntax is also incorrect.

To open a recordset, you can use DAO or ADO.  If all you want is a single column returned, it might be easier to use DLookup()

me.txtListingsTakenActual = DLookup("CountOfID", "Queries!qryTeamPerfRptListingsTaken", "[Listing Month] '" = me.txtMonthName & "' AND [Listing Year]  = " & me.txtYear)

Based on what you started with, I am assuming that year and month are separate fields and that month is a string and year is numeric.  You will need to adjust the delimiters if that is incorrect.
