Default easy control data value question

I have a report which has on it a text box
when I enter the data value for the control as ProjectName it works fine
when I enter the data value for the control as CurrentIssueTitle it works
fine
(both are in the report's data source)

however, when I enter:
= [ProjectName] & chr(13) & chr(10) & [CurrentIssueTitle] the result is
an #error#
even if I simply enter:
= [ProjectName] & [CurrentIssueTitle] the result is an #error# it's
still an error


any suggestions would be greatly appreciated in advance,
Mark

What is the NAME of the textbox CONTROL? Is it possibly the same name as one
of the fields? If so, change the control's name.

If the report' recordsource is not already a query, make the recordsource a
query with all the fields you need in the report. In a blank field in the
query put:
PNameCITitle = [ProjectName] & chr(13) & chr(10) & [CurrentIssueTitle]

Then in the controlsource of the textbox put PNameCITitle.

Even though I don't care for creating the expressions in the query, I expect
Steve forgot to change the "=" to ":"
PNameCITitle: [ProjectName] & chr(13) & chr(10) & [CurrentIssueTitle]
