Overcoming run-time error 2465 application object or defined error in viewing Access report with break on all errors.

Basically I have all my Access reports accessing the following function upon when a PageFooterSection_Format is performed.
However not all reports have a label called lblLegend - thus where I have Else
    objReport.lblLegend.Properties("Visible") = False I get a run-time error 2465 application object.
I absolutely cannot afford to get this error and have the On Error Resume Next does not work for some situations.
Is there anyway I can test to be sure that lblLegend exists before accessing the properties?

Thank you,

Stephen


Public Function fncMyFooterFunction(objReport As Object)
On Error Resume Next

If Forms!frmReports!chkLegend = True Then
    objReport.lblLegend.Properties("Visible") = True
    objReport.LineLegend.Properties("Visible") = True
    objReport.lblLegend.Properties("Top") = 1020
    objReport.PageFooterSection.Height = 1.0833
    objReport.PageFooter2.Height = 1.0833
  Else
    objReport.lblLegend.Properties("Visible") = False
    objReport.LineLegend.Properties("Visible") = False
    objReport.PageFooterSection.Height = 0
    objReport.lblLegend.Properties("Top") = 0
    objReport.PageFooter2.Height = 0.5
End If

End Sub

A simple function, may not be elegant but does work

Public Function CheckFieldExists(ByVal obj As Object, ByVal sName As String) As Boolean

    Dim ctl As Control
   
   
    CheckFieldExists = False
    For Each ctl In obj.Controls
        If ctl.name = sName Then CheckFieldExists = True
    Next
End Function


Call it passing in the form or report object, along with name of control
It returns true if it exists, false otherwise

Example usage - I have a form called form9, and a control called Text0

    MsgBox CheckFieldExists(Forms("form9"), "Text0")



So I guess u could do


if CheckFieldExists(objReport, "lblLegend") = True then objReport.lblLegend.Properties("Visible") = True

the other way of course is to set it, then check the err.number (u need on error resume next set)
or have a generic error handler and ignore the control not found error

In the PageFooter, loop thru all the controls in the report to test if any has the name 'lblLegend'.  If so, test for visible and act accordingly.  ie.

For each ctl in Me.Controls
  If me.ctl.name = 'lbLegend"
    <Run code if true>
  Else
    <Runcode if false>
End If

Sorry, that should be:

For each ctl in Me.Controls
  If me.ctl.name = "lbLegend"
    <Run code if true>
  Else
    <Runcode if false>
End If
