Set Control Source Value in SubReport at Runtime from MainReport

2 New Member
I have a report and a sub-report. I want to reuse the sub-report in the main report, but change the Control Source of a TextBox for each use. I am coding:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Reports![rptMain]![SubReportControlName].Report![Title Label].ControlSource = "=""Value A"""
I consistently get:

Run-time Error 2455 You entered an expression that has an invalid reference to the property Form/Report.

The code is in the Report Open event of the main report. What am I missing or not seeing?

What is Value A ? It seems to be a variable, but become a string in your code.
Try to debug that by slightly change your code:]

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim NewControlSource As String
  2. NewControlSource = "=""Value A"""
  3. Debug.Print NewControlSource
  4. Reports![rptMain]![SubReportControlName].Report![Title Label].ControlSource = NewControlSource
Of course you will obtain the same error message but now, when the code stop, you can see in Immediate window (press CTRL+G to open this window) that the value for your NewControlSourc e is all the time this string: ="Value A". And this not seems to be an SQL string.

I've created some fields that calculate future dates. The way they are set up they do not save to a table. This is the expression I used (=DateSerial(Year(),Month()+6,Day(). I placed it in the Control Source property. I want to save them to a table so I can use them on a report. So the 2 questions are: 1. How do you use a calculated field that doesn't save to a table in a report?

Hello Access Developers, I'd like to know if it is possible to perform a count in an expression that defines a control source. My report is based on a query. In my report, I want a text box to display the number of times a certain value appears in a certain field (i.e. perform a ‘count'). I will be doing this for many values in many fields so do not wish to have scores of queries to build my report.
