What Event to put VBA Code Upload Images   Link   Email  
Ronald de Boer 

I have a unbound field with an immediate if statement in it in a Subform.  The immediate if is working properly and displays the result I expect.

I need to set filter on with the result of this unbound field and then run some other VBA code.  I currently have this code in the Oncurrent event but when in debug the unbound field is blank.  I am assuming the Oncurrent Event is before the field has been evaluated to populate the result.

Please note this Sub form has all field disabled and is used for display purposes only. Therefore all on On Focus, Lost Focus etc won't work as I understand them.

What event can be used for the code I need to run after the unbound field has been evaluated and the result displayed on the screen?

Is your field a calculated field, with a formula as the control source (see picture below)?  If so, it isn't really unbound.  Unbound means the control source is blank.  A calculated field is evaluated for ALL rows when a form opens.  It works like actual bound fields in a continuous form or datasheet: whichever row is the current row, you see updated values in all the rows, all the time.  They don't wait for the Current event to run to evaluate themselves.  If you see an incorrect value in your calculated field when the Current event runs, maybe the code in the Current event causes the formula of the field to not work properly.
