Help with Calculation on the third form

On form B, I have a field that is a calculation based in a query....I have no problems.  My third form is where I am having problems.  Can I refer formB.FieldTotal2 and use it in formC.FieldBegTotal3

So here is what I am trying to do

Final_frm2                             Final_frm3                         Final_frm4
BegTotal-->TotalBC2         TotalBC2-->TotalBC3         TotalBC3-->TotalBC4

These fields began with a calculations.....

Are these Subforms? If so, you'll have to refer to them differently. But as Rey and Jeff have said, we can't really help you if you don't give us the information we need ...

you can get the value of a control from a form with this

Forms!NameOfForm.Controlname

so in form "Final_frm3", you can do this

me.TotalBC3= Forms!Final_frm2.TotalBC2

now you just have to figure out the events that you need

try using the Form's Load Event and/or Form's Current event

JAss SAini,
<Just FYI, No points wanted>

What Rey posted is the exact same syntax as was used in your previous question(s)

So see this link for info on referencing form controls...

Yes..these are subforms...

The first subform refers back to a field on the table...No problem.  I have no issues with that.

Second subform...I used a calculation in query..here is that

Beg Total for form 2

BegTotal: Nz([Final_Table].[Total Initial],0)+Nz([BC1Chng1],0)+Nz([BC1Chng2],0)+Nz([BC1Chng3],0)+Nz([BC1Chng4],0)+Nz([BC1Chng5],0)+Nz([BC1Chng6],0)+Nz([BC1Chng7],0)+Nz([BC1Chng8],0)+Nz([BC1Chng9],0)+Nz([BC1Chng10],0)

End total for Form 2

TotalBC2: Nz([BegTotal],0)+Nz([BC2Chng1],0)+Nz([BC2Chng2],0)+Nz([BC2Chng3],0)+Nz([BC2Chng4],0)+Nz([BC2Chng5],0)+Nz([BC2Chng6],0)+Nz([BC2Chng7],0)+Nz([BC2Chng8],0)+Nz([BC2Chng9],0)+Nz([BC2Chng10],0)

This is not causing me an issue either

The third form Beginning Total should be form 2 end total:

BegTotal3: Nz([Final_Table Query2].[BegTotal],0)+Nz([BC2Chng1],0)+Nz([BC2Chng2],0)+Nz([BC2Chng3],0)+Nz([BC2Chng4],0)+Nz([BC2Chng5],0)+Nz([BC2Chng6],0)+Nz([BC2Chng7],0)+Nz([BC2Chng8],0)+Nz([BC2Chng9],0)+Nz([BC2Chng10],0)

When I run the query..it is asking me to supply the Parameter Value for Final_Table Query2.BegTotal.
The box says to "Enter Parameter Value" and it says the field name.

My query are named Final_Table Query2 and Final_Table Query3 respectively.  The subform are called fsub_Final_Table Query2 and Query3 respectively.

Hope this helps..I have tried every different combination (subform name and query name) and each time it ask me to enter the parameter value

I just tried putting =[Forms]![fsub_Final_Table Query2]![TotalBC2] in the BegTotal3 control source.  It does return a value..but the value is returns is the first value in that field for all the records..meaning it is returning the same value in the entire form

Is the "Final_Table Query2" table part of your query?

If BegTotal a calculated field?

Jass SainiAuthor Commented:
Sorry ....Final_table Query2 is a query....

I am trying to do all the calculation within the query..as I was told it's not good practice to have a calculated field in the table.

Jass SainiAuthor Commented:
Yes ..BegTotal is calculated field.

BegTotal: Nz([Final_Table].[Total Initial],0)+Nz([BC1Chng1],0)+Nz([BC1Chng2],0)+Nz([BC1Chng3],0)+Nz([BC1Chng4],0)+Nz([BC1Chng5],0)+Nz([BC1Chng6],0)+Nz([BC1Chng7],0)+Nz([BC1Chng8],0)+Nz([BC1Chng9],0)+Nz([BC1Chng10],0)

This normally means you've misspelled a Table or Field name, or you're trying to refer to a Table or Field that is NOT part of the Query.

If you run the query in the query designer, do you still get the prompt?

Jass SainiAuthor Commented:
Do you mean in design view?? Yes I still get the same prompt.  The field is in a subform...

Jass SainiAuthor Commented:
That's okay..I did the calculation based off the one field in the table..Thanks for your help
