if you get that error then activecontrol is nothing so you lost the reference to the object somewhere before the if test

then post more of your code, we can't see what's happening before you go into the if statement and it looks like the object is already nothing by then

   Dim myHandler As Object
    Set myHandler = ActiveControl

Change If UCase(ActiveControl.Name) = "QUIT" Or UCase(ActiveControl.Name) = "LABEL2" Then Exit Sub TO

If UCase(myHandler.Name) = "QUIT" Or UCase(myHandler.Name) = "LABEL2" Then Exit Sub

Also one thing to notice, myHandler.Name is the name of the control. You should use myHandler.Caption instead.

Thanks & Cheers

Sorry, I was confused just now. You got the Error because the ActiveControl is nothing at the time, which mean there is not control in focus at the time.

'You can check the existence of ActiveObject first
If Not ActiveControl Is Nothing Then
        If UCase(ActiveControl.Name) = "QUIT" Or UCase(ActiveControl.Name) = "LABEL2" Then Exit Sub
End If

I think more code is required.

1st Dont use Error as label name, ie instead of "On Error GoTo ERROR" use something like "On Error GoTo LostFocusError". Error is a keyword inside Visual Basic.

There are many reasons you will get err 91. You may have ommitted a Set statement, you may be trying to use an object that has been set to nothing, etc etc. very hard to guess without complete code.
