    I have the following code in a text box on a form:

    =IIf(DCount("*","[qryContactsExtended]","[ID]<>" & Nz([ID],0) & " And [ContactName] = '" & Replace(Nz([ContactName]),"'","''") & "'")>0,"Possible Duplicate","")

    It just comes up saying #Name?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Quite a complex string to troubleshoot visually, #Name often means Access can't resolve a field or control name. Fully qualifying the [ContactName].[Table1] if its in tables and queries could help. Also if the text box itself doesn't have a unique name that can cause the error.

    Also the DCount function is very touchy (technical term :) ) about its syntax. You might pull it out individually and make sure its working correctly.
