Data Type in Textbox




I recently received some help to a similar question. However, this is a bit
different, and I think it has to do with data types.

In my previous question, from a form, I opened a related form, input
information and records (and at the bottom, there was a locked textbox that
counted the number of records in the opened form), and when I closed this
related form, it put the existing information (record count) into a
textbox(Data type: Number) on the main form.

Well, much like this, I have a main form that I press a button to open a
related form. I input information and in the footer of this related form,
there is a textbox(Sum([Volume])) which keeps a sum of the volume. When I
close this form, I was what is populated in this text box to be in the main
form. It works perfectly with the first example, but this is not working at
all. It is only displaying "0" on the main form, even though the textbox in
the related form displays the sum. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you very much. Here is the Code:

Private Sub Command19_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command19_Click

Forms!fMAINENTRY!fENTRY!txtTotalVolume = Me!txtSumVolume

DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name, acSaveNo

Exit Sub

Resume Exit_Command19_Click
End Sub

(really what I have is a Main form with a subform on it. From the subform I
can click a button to open the Related form)

Thank you very much!!

Fix: After working with it for a while longer, I attempted to use a variable-

Dim tVol as Integer

tVol = txtSumVolume

Forms!fMAINENTRY!fENTRY!txtTotalVolume = tVol

(... and then the rest of the code)

It worked perfectly. I apologize for posting questions and then answering
them myself, but I hope someone can find this helpful.
