Build Problems

I have my app talking with SQL Server....

It works perfectly when I run it in build mode but then when I create the exe it hangs in various places such as after doing a recordset .update, it is supposed to display a message box.  In the build "run" it works, but in the .exe build it hangs where it should be displaying the message.

Any ideas?

Try putting a DoEvents prior to the message box.

I've narrowed it down to the following code that is causing this:

'Msg = "Are You Sure You Want To Add This Department?"
'Style = vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2
'title = "Confirmation"
'response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, title)


If I unrem this it hangs.....

Ideas?

Here is the actual sub...

Sub Save_Click()

On Error GoTo errmsg:

Msg = "Are You Sure You Want To Add This Department?"
Style = vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2
title = "Confirmation"
response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, title)
    If response = vbYes Then

    If txtdepartment.Text = "" Then
        MsgBox "Please Enter a Department Name"
    Exit Sub
    End If


With RS

.AddNew

!department = txtdepartment.Text


.Update

End With

MsgBox "Add Succeeded", vbOKOnly, "Status"
lblnew.Visible = False
txtdepartment.Visible = False

lblselect.Visible = True
combodepartment.Visible = True

ElseIf response = vbNo Then
lblnew.Visible = False
txtdepartment.Visible = False

lblselect.Visible = True
combodepartment.Visible = True
RS.Filter = adFilterNone
txtdepartment.Text = ""

Exit Sub
End If

Exit Sub

errmsg:

     MsgBox "Error # " & Str(Err.Number) & Chr(13) & Err.Description
         
Exit Sub
End Sub

I think maybe your variable names are causing this.  I do not see any DIMs and Style is a keywork.  Try something like this...

Sub Save_Click()

Dim sMsg as string
Dim vStyle
Dim sTitle as string
Dim iResponse as integer

On Error GoTo errmsg:

sMsg = "Are You Sure You Want To Add This Department?"
vStyle = vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2
sTitle = "Confirmation"
iResponse = MsgBox(sMsg, vStyle, sTitle)

I mean Style is a VB Keyword.  Whether or not this is the solution to your problem it is always good programming practice to prefix your variable names.  There are different naming conventions you can use :)
