Code Example:
...
sq = "SELECT * FROM..."
Set rec = ...
X = rec!SomeThing

Problem:
If no "SomeThing" is found in the database or "SomeThing" is "empty", there will be an error.

Workaround:
On Error Resume next
...
recTest = ""
recTest = rec!SomeThing
If recTest <> "" Then ...

Solution:
What is the "value" of rec!SomeThing, if SomeThing is not found or empty?

To clarify my answer

If the recordset is empty then you cant' access the field value without error.  You check for this with rec.RecordCount = 0 (indicates empty record set)
