	%X In this paper, at first we explain about negative
hypergeometric distribution and its properties. Then we use the w-function
and the Stein identity to give a result on the poisson
approximation to the negative hypergeometric distribution in terms of the total variation distance between the negative hypergeometric and
poisson distributions and its upper bound.
