Run-Time Error 2501 on DoCmd.Save

One of my users is receiving run time error 2501 when the following statement is executed:

DoCmd.Save acForm, "frmXYZ"

I can perform the same action from my system without an issue, and I have 30 other users who havent encountered this problem.  I am leaning towards this being an issue with not having the proper version of something (such as MDAC) installed.

Thanks in Advance,

- Michael

DoCmd.Save acForm, "frmXYZ"

this saves the property changes to the form object itself ... is this what you are really trying to do or just save the record?

If you are trying to save the record, use:
Forms!frmXYZ.Dirty=False

Or from within the form itself:
Me.Dirty=False

Or you can also use this command to save a record:

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord

The intent of the code was to save the record, not the entire form.

Thanks for the information!

(Although, I am still curious as why this only happened to one user, and not all of them)

perhaps they have Runtime and not full version of Access?
