Hi,
Here goes my code
-------------------------------------------------
Option Explicit
Dim Conn As New ADODB.Connection

Private Sub Form_Load()

    Conn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=C:\windows\desktop\db2.MDB"
    Conn.Open
   
    Dim adors As New ADODB.Recordset
   
    adors.Open "SELECT  empno from table1 where replace(ucase(dept),' ','')='SW'", Conn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly

End sub

I have written a function named "replace" as public function in Access database module. I get error as undefined 'replace' function. How to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.
Moorthy.

First of all are you aware that replace() is an internal function? try naming it something else and see if that clerars it up.

Please Delete 'Private' at the head of your function code, and add 'Public' at the begin of your code like:

Public Function Replace()
.........'Code
End Function

To open an Access Function you do the following:

VariableYouWantDataReturnedInto = FunctionName(DataYouArePassingToTheFunction)

eg

CurCostIncludingTax = CalcTax(CurCost)

If you are not expecting data back from the function then it is not a function but a sub.  Rename the Function to a sub and call it.

Call CalcTax(CurCost)

Hi ssaravanamoorthy,

As far as I am aware functions internal to a Jet database are only exposed if  the application is loaded, therefor they are not able to be referenced by a connection.

I know this is closed but if it help no you cannot ref functions externally but you can ref macros.  And a macro can run a function.
