    I have a report that has some null values so it shows #error, is there
    any way to get around this with code so that like the #error = 0?

    Check Help for information about the Nz function. In your situation you may
    set a text box control source to:
    =Nz([YourField],0)
    Or it may be in a query, or VBA. Your question is short on details, but Nz
    is the way to proceed.

    Hi Dan

    Press F1 (help) and search on Null values or Nz

    I just copied this of the help site.
    The Nz function is useful for expressions that may include Null values. To
    force an expression to evaluate to a non-Null value even when it contains a
    Null value, use the Nz function to return zero, a zero-length string, or a
    custom return value.

    Hope this helps

    the way that the field is calculated is through adding all the sums of
    a few columns in a table, inside of a function, is it possible to call
    a function inside of NZ()? This is in access.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
