Why getting an overflow error when tryint to open a form

I'm getting an overflow error when a form opens.  The code gets stuck on:

Me.txtDollarsPerHour = IIf(Me.txtActualHours = 0, 0, Me.txtDollarsPerHour = Me.txtFee / Me.txtActualHours)

Note:  If I put a breakpoint on the line then Me.DollarsPerHour is null.  Maybe that has something to do with it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It looks like the syntax may be off on your statement, you may want this (not worrying about data types for a minute...).

Me.txtDollarsPerHour = IIf(Me.txtActualHours = 0, 0, Me.txtFee / Me.txtActualHours)

Yes.  It is zero.  How do I fix the code?

Still getting overflow.  Both txtActualHours and txtFee are zero.

Sorry, exploring this a little further I think you will need a full IF statement, not an IIF to get around the zero case.

If txtActualHours = "0" Then
    txtDollarsPerHour = "0"
Else
    txtDollarsPerHour = txtFee / txtActualHours
End If

txtFee is currency.  txtActualHours is Number, single, standard, 2.   txtDollarsPerHour is currency.

This worked:

If txtActualHours = "0" Then
    txtDollarsPerHour = "0"
Else
    txtDollarsPerHour = txtFee / txtActualHours
End If

Thanks!
