On a form I have a command button that I'm writing code for.  What I need for this button to due is to open one table and compare it to records in a second table.  The problem I'm having and it's stumping me b/c it seems like a bug is that Access will recognize some of the fields in both tables but it won't recognize the others.  Even if just try to write code for just one of the tables it will recognize the first field in my table but none of the others???  Any ideas???

Thanks,
Kerry

Hi,

The only thing I can think of is how do you label your fields?

if you have field such as   Date of month   you need to reference it as [date of month].

Any fiel that has a space is required to be in brackets. also make sure they are properly referenced as recordset.

My fields are labeled
sName
iRoomNum
iBedNum
sSSN

ect... I'm not using any spaces in the names of my fields nor my tables, that's why I'm confused.

Thanks anyways,
Kerry

Let's see the code you are using.

Kerry, does the format of your fields in one table match the format of the comparable field in the second table?  This may be a dumb question, but I have seen a lot of people compare dates to text.  Let me know
