Problem with VBA and assignment of a value

(AverageAge) and the count of records in the subform on the form somewhere 
else than in the subform.  I calculate AverageAge as Average([Age] in the 
form footer.  I get the record count using the recordCount property o the 

The problem is that I can't sem to get the value 'AverageAge' into an 
unbound textbox.

Me.AvgAge = Me.Team_Members_subform.Form.AverageAge   produces the error
Application-Defined or Object-Defined error.

Me.AvgAge = Me.Team_Members_subform.Form.Age  gives me the correct age for 
the first record in the subform which is what I expected to get.

As a followup to the first post I can get the value of AverageAge from the 
footer of the subform by using the following in the ControlSource property of 
the testbox.

=[Team Members subform].[Form]![AverageAge]

this has worked for sometime but nowI need to control when the field gets 
updated so I need to get the VBA code to work

thanks for any and all help.

Is the control where you are storing the average age actually named 
'AverageAge'? If not you should use the actual name of the control.

Me.Team_Members_subform.Form![name of control here]

converting tabular structures in a Word document into an actual table or reading data from the tabular structures using VBA code
I have a macro which can read the last cell/column of all tables in a Word 2003/2007 document and store the data in an MS-Access table. But, some Word documents have the data in structures like a table format but are not actually tables. The structure looks like a table, but the table borders are actually line connectors.

copying formulas in vba
Hey guys. I was wondering if someone could help me. I am writing a vba script that takes in data, analyzes it, and then copies the results to a new file. I am having a problem with two things. 1) I am using a template for the new file so there are a lot of formulas (sums and std) already defined and ready to use.

How do I copy formulas from one cell to another (allowing for a change in row) in vba? Lets say cell(1,4) has the form...
