On a form I have a field that may read, "Baseball, Football, Basketball".

If in that string of characters there is "Football", I want a second field to populate with "30".  Otherwise "90"

Here is my oncurrent event code that is not working:

   If InStr(txtGames, "Football") Then
        Me.txtNumber = 30
        Else
        Me.txtNumber = 90
    End If
