On a report, if one number is greater than another number then I want the 3rd number to be surrounded by parentheses.

I've tried this in the onformat and onprint event of the report detail section:

If Me.txtActualHrs > Me.txtSchedHrs Then
Me.txtHrVariance = "(" & Me.txtHrVariance & ")"
End If

No need for code. Just adjust the ControlSource of txtHrVariance:

=IIf(Me!txtActualHrs > Me!txtSchedHrs, "(" & <yourcurrentcontrolsource> & ")",<yourcurrentcontrolsource>)

So, if <yourcurrentcontrolsource> is [ActualHrs]:

=IIf(Me!txtActualHrs > Me!txtSchedHrs, "(" & [ActualHrs] & ")",[ActualHrs])
