Display updated Totals

P: n/a
I am using Access 2000 with the switchboard as my main interface. On
the switchboard, I want to put a text field that is linked to a query
that is set up to total daily bookings. I want this to refresh based
on the timer fuction. Do I set the text property control to point to
the query or is the form timer function to do this?

You could probably do either.

1) In the timer function, get the value you want and set the result to the
value of the textbox.

2) Make the textbox a calculated textbox, probably using the DCount
function. In the form's Timer event use Me.Recalc to get the textbox to
update.
