here is a simplified version of my sub

private sub MySub()

   do something
 
   call another sub which in turn calls a variety of simple date conversions,etc.

   do something else  <-- NEVER COMES BACK TO THIS

end sub

BUT!!! the only problem is that it never comes back to 'do something else'
-  when i look at the call stack in the beginning MySub can be seen as the caller....but then at some point it is removed from the stack?!?!

thanks

have you used step over and step out in debug mode to see where it's branching to and why it's not coming back?

'yes...when it should come back, it doesnt.'

Does his happen on a particular line of code or is it in an infinite loop?

You will have to step into the called procedures to understand exactly where it goes wrong. You should use breakpoints or Run To Cursor to check when and if it exits from large loops.

do something     // break point here
 
call another sub which in turn calls a variety of simple date conversions,etc.

do something else  <-- NEVER COMES BACK TO THIS // break point here

it is not in an infinite loop as I regain control of the form.

Can we get a little more info ie: the sub it is calling. Is it using any third party controls?

You have repeated your question, but you still do not say how far it gets inside the sub which calls the variety of simple date conversions.

It could be that an error is occuring within the "variety of simple data conversions, etc" Sub, and is being handled by an error handler in MySub() by an Exit Sub command.

But... Without the code I cannot really say for sure.
