    I have a form that is based on a table I have been using for a while. I have
    recently added a new field to that table and I'm now trying to create a text
    box in this form that is based on this new field. The form was originally
    created with the form wizard. I've tried various expressions in the control
    source for this text box, but have not been successful in establishing a link
    between the text box in my form with the new field in my table. Any
    suggestions on what I'm doing wrong and how I can correct this? Thanks.

    There is a drop down list provided in the control source, simply expand the
    drop down and select the correct field. If it is not in the list, then you
    need to double check your forms record source. It may be based on a queary
    instead, and the field needs to be added to the query. If everything is
    correct the control source for the textbox will be the name of the new field
    as it appears in the table.

    Hi Ray -- In design view for the form, open the field list and drag the new
    field onto the form.
