Another Way of Handling Null Database Fields

A compact way of handling null database fields is as follows:

 txtText1.text = Format(rs!Field)


If rs!Field is null, Format(rs!Field) will resolve to an empty string.Otherwise the value in the recordset field will be entered into the text box. This behavior of Format() is rarely noticed but is useful because it makes code simpler to read.
