I keep getting this popup when I run the form asking me to enter the parameter value for the field. Attached is a screenshot of the pop-up and the setting for the textBox.
Dim arName As String
Dim enName As String
Dim box As String
Dim landl As String
Dim mob As String
 
Text1.SetFocus
arName = Text1.Text
 
Text3.SetFocus
enName = Text3.Text
 
DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO Owner(NameAr, NameEn) VALUES (" & arName & ", " & enName & ");"

Open in new window

Look for ArabicName in your code.  Check if it is entered as a criteria or an unknown field in a query.

If you have strings as opposed to numbers you need to double up the quotations.

Replace your last code line with the following - You can copy / paste: (That will have the effect of surrounding arName and enName by a single quote)

DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO Owner(NameAr, NameEn) VALUES ('" & arName & "', '" & enName & "');"
