I'm trying to call a public function using:
Call CreateRecordset(PrYTDSales, strPrYTDSales)


calling:

Public Function CreateRecordset(PassedRecordset As ADODB.Recordset, PassedString As String) As String
   
    With PassedRecordset
        .ActiveConnection = cn
        .CursorLocation = adUseClient
        .CursorType = adOpenStatic
        .Open PassedString
    End With

End Function

Getting the error:
Expected variable or procedure, not module


The "With" is throwing me off.  Any ideas?

Thanks

what are the names of your modules? if you have a module and function/variable that have the same name, this can give you this kind of compilation error....

Public Function CreateRecordset(rsPassedRecordset As ADODB.Recordset, strPassedString As String) As String
   
    With rsPassedRecordset
        .ActiveConnection = cn
        .CursorLocation = adUseClient
        .CursorType = adOpenStatic
        .Open strPassedString
    End With

End Function


and call:

CreateRecordset PrYTDSales, strPrYTDSales

They have the same name.  So how do I call a function within a module with different names?

The function and the module were both called CreateRecordset, I changed the module to mdlCreateRecordset

Yeah, just figured that out.  Now I get arguments are of the wrong type, out of the acceptable range or in conflict with each other error.

I figured it out, I had to pass the adodb.connect (cn) along with the other parameters.
