If you go to Help and look at the IsObject function, it says you can use the IsNothing function.  However, it doesn't appear to exist in Access 97!!!!  I'm trying to use an If..then statement to determine if a variable defined as "Form" has been assigned the Nothing value.  It would be nice if I could use the IsNothing function.  

p.s. I have two questions for the designers of this web site:
1.  Why don't you have a search capability so we can search all questions and answers?
2.  Why do we have to determine how hard a question is?  That's pretty relative, don't you think?  The hardness of a question depends upon the answerer, not the questioner.  Shouldn't the experts determine how many points to deduct from our "banks"?

INTERESTING. The help file must be upgemixed. Try this:

Function IsNothing(x)
  IsNothing = TypeName(x) = "Nothing"
End Function

RE PS
1-the site designers normally don't read the postings. There is a Customer Service Area with a Suggestions topic where you can communicate with them. See the home page.
2-If your question is too low in points we will ask you to raise the point value. Its all relative.
