Object Required Error when calling Form Procedure from inside Access 2003 Form

I have been away from Basic for several years and lots of things have changed.  I am converting a series of Excel
workbooks into a Access 2003 database.  The database design is simple, a Lots table with entries for each lot and a Subdivision table that has default values for various groups of lots.  The database has been loaded but I need to (1) set null values to 0, (2) retrieve and post the devaults into the lot records and then (3) update calculated values in the Lots records.

I have tried the following as a single procedure and as a module.  I am calling this single procedure from the single Form that is used for maintaining the Lots table.  Have been encountering the "Run Time Error 424 Object Required" error message and now am receiving the "Object Required" message on the "Set LotsRecId = Me!LotsRecId" line.  Cannot find any book or online references that makes this clear.

Am trying to do the Lot record updates first and then the population of the defaults.  Any recommendations are welcomed.
Thanks in advance for the help.  I have some co-workers that really, really want to get off of Excel.
