#Name? displayed in a control

Symptoms

You see #Name? displayed in a control.

Cause

Access displays #Name? in a control when the name that you supplied as the source of the control's value is not valid. You use the ControlSource property to specify the source of the control's value. For example, you might have misspelled the name, or the source might have been renamed or deleted. You may also see #Name? in a control if you place an expression in the control's ControlSource property and you insert a space before the equal sign that starts the expression.
