MS Access 2013

I have a report that is based solely on an SQL statement in the record source. It is very efficient - however, there are certain needs that need to be addressed for one particular customer.

In the report there is a number of calculated fields that produce the total price of each number of items, and an invoice total. there is a textbox control that displays a customer number. it is designated as field79 in the property sheet with a control source of TrxCust.  there are several hidden textbox controls that calculate the invoice total. They are as follows


Control Sources
=rSetValue("CustInv","InvoiceTotal","Continues...") - Field 102

Not hidden

=IIf(IsNumeric([InvoiceTotal]),"Total:","")  with one adjacent to that named "InvoiceTotal"

What I need to do is ad $20.00 to the InvoiceTotal when the field79 "TrxCust" is 27. There is no designated format for field 79 - so I cannot tell you if it is number or text - and Decimal places is set to Auto

I have tried different variations of code in the On Load property Like

If Me.Field79.Value = 27 Then
Me.InvoiceTotal.Value = InvoiceTotal + Text127.Value
End If
 With and without Value added - and I am lost - I've attached the SQL code that pulls the info for this Invoice report

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I might add that there is a form to view this order that to is based on SQL - and the subform within it is based on a query that does not contain the Cust No.

Without a sample file, and the explicit steps to recreate the desired result, ...I am at a loss here...

I am sure that what you are asking is as simple as you explain, ...but without any context, ...we would be just guessing till we hit on it...

A shot in the dark would be to try your code on the Format event of the section that contains these controls.

This (guessing only) should do as controlsource:


You should rename your textboxes to something meaningful like txtSurcharge.

I think Gustav probably solved your question but given that this is a calculated control, it is not being saved to the table.  So, if you actually need to record the surcharge, you'll need to give us a little more information.
