Calculating Receipt Amount

I am trying to get the receipt amount to change to the gift amount minus 9. I am working in the after dictionaries section which already has some code: 

If import.fields.GetByName("Processing_Method").value="Sustaining" Then import.fields.GetByName("Form_Name").Value="SPW" import.ApplyDictionary("Online Appeal Translation Table",import.fields.GetByName("Form_Name").value) End If 

The above code works fine.

I am using the following code to try to calculate receipt amount:

Dim GiftAmount As Decimal = val(Import.fields.getbyName("GIFT_AMOUNT").Value) 

Dim ReceiptAmount As Decimal= GiftAmount-9 

Import.Fields.GetByName("Receipt Amount").Value cstr(GiftAmount-9) 

The last line is giving me the following two errors:  

Property access must assign to the property or use its value 

Method arguments must be enclosed in parentheses. 

I eventually want to enclose this in an if statement also. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.


It looks like you are missing the equals sign.

Import.Fields.GetByName("Receipt Amount").Value = cstr(GiftAmount-9)

Thank you so much.  Some times it's the simplest things you miss.  That worked!
