Here is my delema.  First I do not get this error on my computer.  Second, when my boss runs this application and the VB program tries to access the MSAccess Report she gets:

"Runtime Error '3146'
 Incorrect syntax near #170.."


What do you think I should do about this?


This is how I am accessing the MSAccess Report.


    Private appAccess As Access.Application
    Dim strWhere as String

    Set appAccess = New Access.Application
    strWhere = "(YTDAPHistory.DOCDATE > #" & txtEDate.Text & "#)"
    appAccess.Visible = False
    appAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase App.Path & "\VBMembers.mdb", True

    With appAccess.DoCmd
        .OpenReport "LCC-AP_Match", acViewPreview, , strWhere
        .Maximize
    End With

Remember that where your boss executes your program on her system may be located in a different file path then where you execute from.  App.Path can be your enemy if not used correctly.

appAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase App.Path & "\VBMembers.mdb", True

But isn't App.Path "\" supposed to work on anything no matter where the application is at?


There is other employees that run this appilcation and it works for them and that is why this really puzzles me.  She wants me to fix it right away and I do not know how since it only has the error on her computer.

try to hardcode the date into your criteria:

strWhere = "(YTDAPHistory.DOCDATE > #2002/05/30#)"

It still does not work at all.  I checked both of our settings and they all match.

Things to check.

What version of MS Access is she running.
What vesion of vbrun time is she running (msvbvm60.dll).
Might even check for what version of MDAC she is running.  Just check the msado15.dll file to determine this.

I am also asuming that the access .mdb file is on here system, not on a network drive.

The point that I am looking at is that its a Syntax Error, meaning that there is something that is not correct in the way the code is written.

Sometimes different versions of classes support different parameter values when calling its methods or properties. This may be an issue as well.  Checking that all the files are the some on your system as well as hers will eliviate this question.


Also validate this value coming in.

If IsDate(txtEDate.Text) = True Then
     strWhere = "(YTDAPHistory.DOCDATE > #" & txtEDate.Text & "#)"
Else
     'Report Error to user
End If

It is on a network.  I think she is running both Access '97 and 2000.  I asked her just to use Access 2000 which I am using, but she needs both of them since a couple programs need them.  I will also check out the IsDate Function...
