    This may be a duplicate post. If so I apologize.

    Here's what I'm doing:


    Function CheckNumber(dblNumber as Double) as Boolean
    CheckNumber=True
    If dblNumber > 999 or dblNumber < -999 then
    msgbox("Error")
    Cancel=true
    CheckNumber=False
    End If
    End Function


    My function call within the properties window:
    Before Update -
    =CheckNumber([controlName])


    I need the control name to be the control that I'm on. I could put
    this function call in all my controls and change the control name
    everytime, but isnt't there a way to pass the value of the control that

    triggered the event? Something like =CheckNumber(Me.Control)

    Look into ActiveControl in the Help file.
