Hi,

I have two forms. The a button on the main form is clicked which loads another form called frmDaily, which has 3 buttons on it. In the frmDaily object I have some code which contains the unload me statement, however the code debug here with "can't load or unload this object".

I do not understand why this is happening & I have never come across this before? Any help would be great!

Thanks

Mark

Instead of Unload "form", what worked was:

DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmName"

With this usage, you do not need the Form_ prefix.

Thanks very much.

I normally use Unload Me without any trouble can you tell me why it would not work in this case?

Cheers

Unload works in VB, not Access VBA.
