Text Box results in error

I downloaded the "Issues" database template and modified it pretty heavily. 
One of the fields is a lookup type of field.  In a canned report, this field 
displays fine when I place it in my detail section or my section header.  If 
I try to use it in an unbound text box, I get an error.

If I enter    =[Application]    or   = "Appl: " & [Application]

I get #Error

Can anyone tell me why it works as a bound field, but not in a text box?

Did you change the Name property of the text box as well?

Access gets confused if the control has the same Name as a field, but is 
bound to something else.

In any case, Application is a reserved word in Access, so a poor choice of 
name for a field. I understand you probably didn't choose this name, but 
that doesn't change the fact that is can cause problems. For a list of names 
to avoid (more than 1000 of them), see:

TEXT = text
I have some data in an Excel table which uses case sensitive codes. Does anyone know of a way to perform case sensitive VLookups. Example. A1 contains "TEXT", A2 contains "One". B1 contains "text", B2 contains "Two" If I enter "text" in cell A4 and the following VLookup in B4: =VLOOKUP(A4;A1:B2;2;FALSE) I get the answer "One", but I would like to see "Two". I have found a work around by converting a number of characters to their ASCII codes, but this is very messy. I know that the FIND function is case sensitive whe...

Selecting text in a document
Hi, I have a macro which finds a certain piece of text in the document and then moves down a line and then selects all the text between that and the end of the document and the selected text is later sent out in an email. This has been working for some time but I have recently had some problems because the text is not being selected as before (extendmode on?) and I am sending out blank emails. The code fragment that I use to select the text is as follows Selection.HomeKey wdStory Selection.Find.Execute "Issued at" Selection.MoveDo...

Resizing cells to fit text returned by VLOOKUP
I have some VLOOKUPs which sometimes return 50 or 60 characters (they're in merged cells). I want the text to wrap, and the cell to enlarge to fit the text - Just like it does whan you type it in, but somehow, because it is being returned from a formula it just displays the bottom line of the wrapped text, and doesn't resize the row. Anyone know how I cam make it fit? I'm happy to use a VBA solution if there's no built in way to make it happen automatically. Thanks M Would you mind to limit your request to ONE newsgroup?

filtering results in excel
Hello to all you experts, i want to be able to filter a large amount of data to a single row that i can then use in other areas. data consists of about 85 columns and 15000 rows of data, much of which is very similar. 1st filter would have about 15 unique names, each of which then limits the rows to several hundred 2nd filter will then limit the range to about 100 rows 3rd filter approx 20 rows 4th filter 2 rows 5th filter exact range required. Autofilter is the perfect option but, it does not allow me to define the row and then select the data, i.e. any of the 15000 rows could b...

Text Boxes on Charts not showing up
Has anyone experienced this? I've got a chart in a spreadsheet and I add text boxes to the graph section. They appear on the page yet when I click off the page, the text box disappears. If I go to print preview, the text boxes are there so why can't I see them on the screen? I've tried the bring forward command but that didn't work. This is also sporadic as some of my text boxes stay in place why others seem to disappear. Sue - If the chart is selected when you draw the text box, the text box becomes part of the chart. If not, the text box just floats along in the dr...

avoid losing text when text submission timed out?
Often I have to log in to some web site to enter a few paragraphs of text (e.g. web email submission, user forum, product reviews, etc). Sometimes it takes me a while to compose the text, and by the time I click submit, I get a response saying the session has timed out, and the text that took me a long time to compose is gone. Is there a way to retrieve this text? Clicking the back button doesn't work. Perhaps it is in a cache somewhere? The portion of the web page containing your text may or may not be in TIF, but here's what I do: Before I hit the 'Submit'...
