I have converted a DB from access 97 to access 2002 - and now a search form dosnt work. The line of code looks like this:
DoCmd.DoMenuItem A_FORMBAR, A_EDITMENU, 10, , A_MENU_VER20
It opens a search and replace dialog, but is only supposed to open a search dialog.
How do I make it work ?

First of all the command is setup for using ACCESS 2.0

DoCmd.DoMenuItem A_FORMBAR, A_EDITMENU, 10, , A_MENU_VER20

I don't use ACCESS 2000 yet but the A_MENU_VER20 should be changed to reflect the reference to the version of access that you are using.  The parameter list of actions is also different from one version to the next. Place your cursor behind the DoMenuItem and press your F1 key to go to help for this command.  This will assist you in updating the correct version identifier.  

As far as what this command does:  It executes from the Form Menu Bar the Edit DropDown Menu item 10 which back in ACCESS 2.0 was the Search command.  The help screen will assist you in identifying the correct parameter that you want to use.  You do not need to use a number as originally coded but you can select a parameter such as acSearch.

I hope I helped you a little.

I have tried to place my cursor behind the DoMenuItem and press the F1 key, but I dont understand the options that appear.
The search should end up in a list of hits, but when I press the search button I get an errormessage. - Maybe the problem isnt really migration related - The database is made in an english version of Access 97 but I try to open it in a Danish version og Access 2002 !?
