I have a main form  that when open, i'm wanting to set  a global  variable


LABEL_CURRENT_REVIEW_DATE   is a label on  "RUN_BUILD_FORM"

In a module:
Global CSP_REVIEWDATE_CRITERIA  As String



On my main form load event
Private Sub Form_Load()
' this is the main form loading at startup
CSP_REVIEWDATE_CRITERIA = Forms!RUN_BUILD_FORM!LABEL_CURRENT_REVIEW_DATE
End Sub


I cant seem to get the code correct to grab the current value on the form. "RUN_BUILD_FORM"


Thanks

I'm not sure what you want from a label.  The only property that makes sense in this context is the caption property:
CSP_REVIEWDATE_CRITERIA = Forms!RUN_BUILD_FORM!LABEL_CURRENT_REVIEW_DATE.Caption

BUT, the caption is static.  Are you sure you don't want the value of the textbox the label is attached to?

CSP_REVIEWDATE_CRITERIA = Forms!RUN_BUILD_FORM!thetextboxname
