Error 2101-The setting you entered isn't valid for this property
Posted on 2004-11-03
This one is weird; I hope someone has seen it before.
I am reading a linked file with about 40,000 records and then adding records to several tables that are local to Access. I am doing this for five different sites, but the file structure I am writing to is identical in each case, and appropirate records are selected for each site.
In each case, I am reading all 40,000 records, in site number order.
Site 1 load runs fine. The bulk of the records are at the beginning.
Site 2 load runs fine. The bulk of the records are in the first half of source file.
Sites 3, 4, and 5 all get an error when the load is 99% complete. Of course, all of these records are in the last half of the source file.
The error I get is "2101: The setting you entered isn't valid for this property".
By the time I get the error, I have already run through the sections of code that generate this error thousands of times. The failure is happening in a progress meter program Property Let module.
I have tried the decompile suggestion with no success.
For various reasons, I want to read the entire source file each time, but if I am desperate, I may try to decrease the number of records to just the site involved, although that is probably a long shot anyway. An easy, reasonable work-around would be fine. I haven't tried reading the source file in descending order, for example.
