When you click on the Filter by Form toolbar button, the active form changes to filter-by-form view. If you then click 'Close' on the Filter/Sort toolbar, the form reverts to normal view.
What is the code equivalent of clicking 'Close' on the Filter/Sort toolbar?
I've tried
   DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdClose
but I get
   Error: No current record.

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdCloseWindow results in a "No Current record" error.

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdRemoveFilterSort results in a "The action RemoveFilterSort is not available now" error.

I found that this works:

Private Sub Form_Error(DataErr As Integer, Response As Integer)

    Dim Answer As String

    Const conCantFilterByFormWhenRecordSourceIsARecordsetError As Integer = 2594 'AccessError constant

    

    If DataErr = conCantFilterByFormWhenRecordSourceIsARecordsetError Then

        'Can't FilterByForm when Me.Recordsource is a Recordset

        Answer = MsgBox("Filter by Form is not allowed for this form." & vbCr & _

        "(Recordsource of the form or subform is a Recordset.)", vbOKCancel + vbExclamation)

        Response = acDataErrContinue 'Prevent Access from displaying its own message.

        DoCmd.Close 'Close FilterByForm view

        DoCmd.OpenForm Me.Parent.Name 'Reopen form.
 

    End If

    

End Sub

Open in new window
