I belive its because using currentdb each time creates a new instance of the db object

so use

Public Function DaoExecuteSql(SqlStr As String) As Long
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

Dim db as dao.database
Set db = currentdb
   db.Execute (SqlStr), dbFailOnError
   DaoExecuteSql = db.RecordsAffected

Exit Function
ErrorHandler:
   MsgBox Err.Description, vbCritical
   Exit Function
End Function
