Run-time error 3127

I'm receiving error 3127 - INSERT INTO statement containing the following unknown field name 'WorkType' .....
I've tried, but can't understand why it's showing as 'unknown'.
Column 0 field is named: WorkTypeID and Column 1 field is named WorkPerformed.  
Your thoughts?

Dim rsSubformData As DAO.Recordset
    Dim strWorkTypeID As String
    Dim strWorkType As String
    'Get the Event data from the main form
    strWorkTypeID = Me.cboLivestockWorkType.Column(0)
    strWorkType = Me.cboLivestockWorkType.Column(1)
    strWorkCost = Me.txtWorkCost.Value
   
    strSQL = "SELECT tblLivestock.LivestockID, tkpAnimalType.AnimalTypeDescription, "
    strSQL = strSQL & " tkpLivestockType.LivestockTypeDescription , tkpPasture.PastureName, "
    strSQL = strSQL & " tlkpBreed.BreedDescription, tblLivestock.TagNumber, tblLivestock.ChBxFlag "
    strSQL = strSQL & " FROM tlkpBreed INNER JOIN (tkpPasture INNER JOIN (tkpLivestockType INNER JOIN "
    strSQL = strSQL & " (tkpAnimalType INNER JOIN tblLivestock "
    strSQL = strSQL & " ON tkpAnimalType.AnimalTypeID = tblLivestock.AnimalTypeID) "
    strSQL = strSQL & " ON tkpLivestockType.LivestockTypeID = tblLivestock.LivestockTypeID) "
    strSQL = strSQL & " ON tkpPasture.PastureID = tblLivestock.PastureID) "
    strSQL = strSQL & " ON tlkpBreed.BreedID = tblLivestock.BreedID "
    strSQL = strSQL & " WHERE ((tblLivestock.ChBxFlag)=-1);"

    'Open up the subform data so you can loop through all the ones that are checked
    Set rsSubformData = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("qryWorkLivestock")
    rsSubformData.MoveFirst
    Do Until rsSubformData.EOF
        strLivestockID = rsSubformData.Fields("LivestockID").Value
        ' Insert the record into the Event Table (tblEvent)
        strInsert = "Insert into tblWorkLivestock(WorkType, WorkCost) values ( " & strWorkTypeID & ", '" & strWorkCost & "');"
        DoCmd.SetWarnings False
        DoCmd.RunSQL strInsert
    rsSubformData.MoveNext
    Loop
    rsSubformData.Close
    Set rsSubformData = Nothing
    ' Reset all the check boxes
    strResetChecks = "UPDATE tblLivestock SET tblLivestock.ChBxFlag = 0;"
    DoCmd.RunSQL strResetChecks
    Me.sfmWorkLivestock.Requery
    Exit Sub
ExitDuplicate:
    MsgBox "error message is " & Err.Description
End Sub

does tblWorkLiveStock have a field named WorkType?

If it exists, is it textual or numeric? right now you're passing it " & strWorkTypeID & "

jeff,
I think that may be the problem.  tblWorkLivestock has fields:
    WorkID
    WorkDate
    LiveStockID
    WorkTypeID
    Notes

I should add field 'WorkDescription' so I know what the work performed is.  I was trying to follow on your original Insert Statement but I've erred.  I'll go back through it and check some more.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

 
jefftwilleyCommented:
wasn't your Work Description derived from the Work Type ID code? if you're storing the ID in this scenario, then you don't want to store the description again....you'll need theId only so that forms and reports can display description based on the ID, but you do that when you run the report or open the form.

ok, I follow 'ya, so then I can still use the combo box row source:
SELECT tkpLivestockWorkType.WorkTypeID, tkpLivestockWorkType.WorkPerformed FROM tkpLivestockWorkType;

Will this work?

jefftwilleyCommented:
definately. You just need to change that one field name above and at least you won't get that error. Have you tried it yet?

zubin6220Author Commented:
Sorry, now I'm lost again....what field name are you referring to?  WorkPerformed?  change to what?

 I'm not getting any error messages now using:
strInsert = "Insert into tblWorkLivestock(WorkPerformed, WorkCost) values ( " & strWorkTypeID & ",  '" & strWorkCost & "');"

 but nothing is being written to tblWorkLivestock.

your insert line before

 strInsert = "Insert into tblWorkLivestock(WorkType, WorkCost) values ( " & strWorkTypeID & ", '" & strWorkCost & "');"

your table info

 tblWorkLivestock has fields:
    WorkID
    WorkDate
    LiveStockID
    WorkTypeID
    Notes

your insert now

strInsert = "Insert into tblWorkLivestock(WorkPerformed, WorkCost) values ( " & strWorkTypeID & ",  '" & strWorkCost & "');"          
                                                           ~~~~~~~~~~
The insert syntax reads : Insert data into these fields, the values from these sources where my key field = this key

You are missing some parts. I think we originally had to identify the animal to insert this data for...am I right? So ....


    'Open up the subform data so you can loop through all the ones that are checked
    Set rsSubformData = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("qryWorkLivestock")
    rsSubformData.MoveFirst
    Do Until rsSubformData.EOF
        strLivestockID = rsSubformData.Fields("LivestockID").Value   '<<<<--------WE grabbed this so we could insert the record
        ' Insert the record into the Event Table (tblEvent)
        strInsert = "Insert into tblWorkLivestock(WorkType, WorkCost) values ( " & strWorkTypeID & ", '" & strWorkCost & "');"  '<---A where clause is missing
        DoCmd.SetWarnings False
        DoCmd.RunSQL strInsert
    rsSubformData.MoveNext
    Loop

Z, do you still have that old code we originally put together?
0
 
zubin6220Author Commented:
Disregard by last statement about not getting anymore error messages.  Still getting the same one.  It was gone but I see that I added 'WorkPerformed' field in tblWorkLivestock which you said not to duplicate.  So I'm back where I started.....
change the name to what?  Again, I appreciate your patience.  This is getting rather confusing - it really shouldn't be though (what can I say?)

zubin6220Author Commented:
Yes, I still have the old code and was trying to match it up to my current changes.  
I'll certainly understand if you would rather pull out on this mess....no one to blame but myself.

>does tblWorkLiveStock have a field named WorkType?<   No, just WorkTypeID
You mention about a missing WHERE clause.  Yes, the original had two; pasture and the check box.  I just simplified and dropped the pasture and kept the ChBxFlag in my Where clause.

No, I'm not pulling out! lol. I was getting off of work at the time. Have you posted this database somewhere? www.savefile.com is a good place. Let me take a look at it. Also, EE has an upload place now too...but I don't remember the URL.

zubin6220Author Commented:
Jeff,
Thanks for your help.
I've attached the file to: http://www.savefile.com/files/7078715

I'm fairly sure that another field will needed to be added to tblWorkLivestock?
Also, maybe the way I have the three tables (tblLivestock, tblWorkLivestock and tkpLivestockWorkType) linked is incorrect?  I was really trying to use the (older) file to pattern this but with no success.
This is the first time in using 'savefile', so if it is not available for download let me know.  

Thanks again.

This did it:

strInsert = "Insert into tblWorkLivestock(LivestockID,WorkTypeID, WorkCost, WorkDate) values"
strInsert = strInsert & " ('" & strLivestockID & "' , '" & strWorkTypeID & "' , " & strWorkCost & ", #" & strWorkDate & "#);"

Thanks again
