MSAccess Form Recordsource change

I am trying to change the recordsource of a form from another form. When the user clicks on the name of the client in the first form, second form should be displayed about the client which was chosen in the first form.
When I try to run this, it says 'it cannot find the frmclientssearchsub2 in the list of forms.
and highlights the
Me!frmClientsSearchSub2.Form.RecordSource = strsql
I suspect the syntax should be different.
Private Sub ClientName_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
Dim strsql As String
Dim strwhere As String
strsql = "Select * From Assets"
strwhere = "1"
If Not IsNull(Me.Form.ClientName) Then
strwhere = strwhere & " AND LastName= '" & Me.Form.ClientName & "'"
End If
DoCmd.OpenForm ("searchform2")
Me!frmClientsSearchSub2.Form.RecordSource = strsql
End Sub

Open in new window

Is the name of the form you are trying to pull frmClientsSearchSub2 ? If not then you should start there.

1. I cannot see were you are inserting the word "WHERE" in you SQL?

2. I can even see what Field you are trying to use the "1" for?

3. If all the values in the SQL string are hardcoded, then keep things "Simple" and put them all togeather in one string, so this is "easy" to troubleshoot.

4. You should be referring to the company ID, not the Name.

5. It looks like yor final SQL is Malformed.

6. It is not clear if the  1  is really a text datatype ("1"), or a numeric Datatype (1)

In any event, this works fine for me...
