Hi Everyone,

I don't know why this won't work:

Dim rs As Recordset

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM subPatientGoal WHERE patientID = " & Me.Text49 & " and goaldesc = " & Me.listGoals)

If rs.EOF Then
      DoCmd.OpenQuery "AppendGoals"
    Me.ListFinalGoal.Requery
Else
   MsgBox "This has already been added as a goal."
End If

rs.Close
Set rs = Nothing

Can anyone help me?  It's urgent!

Thanks
Jetera

Hello jetera,

What is the point of opening the recordset?  You're not actually doing anything with it.

Try declaring rs as DAO.Recordset, and changing the open line to:

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM subPatientGoal WHERE patientID = '" & Me.Text49 & "' and goaldesc = "' & Me.listGoals & "'")

Regards,

Patrick

I was using it as a check to see if there is already a record in the table.  

I used your syntax and that part works...thanks :)

Now the rs.eof is not recognizing that their are records...
I thought rs.eof=true meant that no records were returned?  Basically I am checking the table for two values before appending the record.  When I know there are records with those values, it is supposed to go to the "else" statement but it is not doing that.

OK, I missed that :)

Before testing the EOF, try:

rs.MoveLast
rs.MoveFirst
