Use the AfterUpdate of the unbound textbox:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Me!BoundTextbox.Value = Me!UnboundTextbox.Value
Refrain from using spaces in the names of your controls.

Hi,

in both case an error message is returned.
What is the content of your error message?

I'm guessing it is "You can't reference a property or method for a control unless the control has the focus."
