I have a form that has a list box that is populated by a saved query.  I have two text boxes that accept date input and a refresh command button that requeries the table to populate the list box when dates are changed.  When I hit refresh the process is stopped because a the table is locked by the saved query.  How do i get around this problem?

What are your record locks set to on your table?  you may have to set them to no locks.  Also, you should use the requery method rather than the refresh.

Hi pcdaveh,

u can use a sql-statement to populate the listbox.

dim strSQL as string
strSQL = "Select FirstField, SecondField from YourTable where YourDate1 > #" & me.txtbox1 & "# and Yourdate1 < #" & me.txtbox2 & "#;"
me.ListBox.Rowsource = strSQL


clear?

Cheers
Ricky

I had previously embedded the SQL statement in the vba code as the row source to the list box.  I received the same errors.

I am thinking you have your record locks option set to All Records.  I believe the table cannot be accessed at all with this option checked, but I've been wrong before and I'm sure I will again...right Ricky :-)
