PRA: Control with Expression Shows up Blank in Form View
Article ID: Q106296
A control that contains an expression appears blank in Form view. However, if the control receives focus, the proper value appears. You can press TAB to move to the control or click it with the mouse; once the pointer is in the control, the correctly calculated value appears.
All bound controls on the form display their correct values at all times.
To test for video driver incompatibility, change the video driver that Windows is currently using. For best results, change the video driver to the standard 640 x 480 VGA driver included with Windows. If the problem does not occur using the VGA driver, contact the video card manufacturer and/or computer manufacturer for an updated video driver.
For instructions about changing the video driver, refer to your Microsoft Windows "Users Guide."
