Single report run time error Upload Images   Link   Email

I watched the video on how to retrieve a single report for a customer using a VBA code. On some buttons and forms, it works great. However, it does not work on all buttons and all forms I'm getting a runtime error, see attached. Could you help me with this dilemma?

James this is a bit to broad of a post.  Can you post, possibly with screenshots, what exactly you are having issues with?

Sorry we posted at the same time.
Just looking at the formula is your "CustomerId=" & Customer accurate?  I'm guessing your field may be actually CustomerID
So "CustomerId=" & CustomerID

It's a bit hard to read it appears that the screen capture is cut off a bit.  Do you have spaces in your report name?
If so put them in brackets.  [ ]
In fact even if it doesn't put it in brackets.  Going back to Beginner 1, Access field names, reports, forms, etc. should only contain letters and on occasion a number.  Dashes ( - ) especially can be mistaken for subtraction.
I don't know how far along you are in your project but you will save yourself tons of headaches renaming you objects now.

The problem I have is with the DoCmd. See below. It always returns an error where it is highlighted in yellow.

DoCmd.OpenReport "TR3FlightTrainingLog", acViewPreview, , "CustomerID = " & CustomerID"

You have an extra " after the second CustomerID

Try this:

DoCmd.OpenReport "TR3FlightTrainingLog", acViewPreview, , "CustomerID = " & CustomerID

I've attached the run time error that I'm receiving when I execute the VBA code.

DoCmd.OpenReport "TR3FlightTrainingLog", acViewPreview, , "InstructorID = " & InstructorID

Do you have a valid InstructorID on your form (that is, not null)?
James McMillan

OK, the query was NUll. The record was blank. I'll create a record in that query and try again.

I created a record with an Instructor ID. I checked the table and the query, and the record showed in the table and the query. I ran the VBA code once again and received the same error message.

The problem is definitely that you're missing an ID. Instead of opening the report, MsgBox that ID and I'll bet it's Null.
