Why Access 2007 Object Required error

I have an Access 2007 form named frmCreateBatch with a textbox named Client.  I have a string variable Where.

Here is the line of code causing the error:

Where = IIf([Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![Client] Is Not Null, [Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![Client], "Now is the time")

If I don't enter anytihing in the textbox, I simple want to set the var Where to a string value, in this sample "Now is time"

What am I missing?

There is a button on the from and the code is in the click event for that button.

Private Sub btnBuildBatch_Click()
Dim Where As String
Where = IIf([Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![Client] Is Not Null, [Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![Client], "Now is the time")
end sub

Is frmCreateBatch open when you click the button ?

I assume 'Client' is the Control source for a text box - and the Name property of the text box is the same?

If so ...  rename the Control to

txtClient  

then modify the code as follows:
Where = IIf([Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![txtClient] Is Not Null, [Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![txtClient], "Now is the time")

Thanks Genius for your reply.  The name of the text box is client, and there is no control source.  I did a test form, and put one text box on the form named StatusCode, and in the click event of a button,
I set a variable as follows:
SCode = [Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![statusCode]
I get the same object required error, but when I go to the immediate window and type
? [Forms]![frmCreateBatch]![statusCode], it prints "WX" which is the text in the textbox.
I seem to just get the error in code.  Very perplexing....  Any suggestions???

"I set a variable as follows:"

Are you doing this in form 'frmCreateBatch' ?

Can you:

1) Compact & Repair (to shrink the size),
2) Zip up the MDB (to further shrink the size)
3) Attach the file for upload here (using the 'Attach File function below) ... removing any sensitive data of course.
4** And please give a clear explanation of exactly how to reproduce the problem or what you are trying to do.

I'll get that done, and attach the file.  
Thanks, I appreciate the help.

I created a text database with one text box, and one button.  Put any text in the text box, and click the command button.
Notice that the debug.print will print what's in the text box, but the program "crashed" with the object required error.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Make the change below noted with asterisks

Private Sub cmdButton_Click()
    Dim Willis As String
    Debug.Print [Forms]![frmCreateBat]![statusCode]
    If Not IsNull([Forms]![frmCreateBat]![statusCode]) Then   ' **********  HERE
        Willis = [Forms]![frmCreateBat]![statusCode]
    End If
    Stop
    End
End Sub

Feel like saying "DUH!"  I guess the fact that debug.print would handled it, I missed the other (and the syntax if.... IS NOT NULL t works in a SQL statement, I missed the other.  Thanks so much for your help.
