I have the following DSum syntax for the control source of a field on a form.  But I need to change it,  Here is the current code:

=DSum("[QTY_ORDERED]","tblInventory","[PART_NO] = '" & [Forms]![frmParts]![txtPART_NO] & "'")

But I need to add two qualifiers to it.

Where TRNX_TYPE = "I" or "O"
How can I change this control source?

I tried:

=DSum("[QTY_ORDERED]","tblInventory","[PART_NO] = '" & [Forms]![frmParts]![txtPART_NO] & "'" WHERE [TRNX_TYPE] = "I" or "O")

but it isn't right.

You have to repeat the operand.

It's also your (missing) single/double quotes:

=DSum("[QTY_ORDERED]","tblInventory","[PART_NO] = '" & [Forms]![frmParts]![txtPART_NO] & "' And [TRNX_TYPE] = 'I' or [TRNX_TYPE] = 'O'")
