I'm trying to have my code open a recordset from a continuous form, run 3 queries which use forms order number as the parameter, then move on to the next record; however, my code is not working - error says cannot find the input table or query "F_table1".  This is a form not a table or query.  How do I force the code to use the form for it's looping?

Function loopthrough()
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim rs1 As DAO.Recordset

 
    Set db = CurrentDb()
    DoCmd.OpenForm "F_Table1"
    Set rs1 = db.OpenRecordset("[F_Table1]")
    str1 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet1"
    str2 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet2"
    str3 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet3"
   
    rs1.MoveFirst
    Do Until rs1.EOF
   
DoCmd.OpenQuery str1
DoCmd.OpenQuery str2
DoCmd.OpenQuery str3

           
            Loop
 
    rs.Close
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set db = Nothing
 
End Function

Are these queries in the DB?

    str1 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet1"
    str2 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet2"
    str3 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet3"

yes - those are the queries that use the order number in the continous form as a parameter.

May be unrelated but you are never closing the recordset. These two lines

rs.Close
Set rs = Nothing

should be

rs1.Close
Set rs1 = Nothing

Also, are displaying the results of the query's on a form or a report?

   str1 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet1" - Make table query
    str2 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet2" - Make table query
    str3 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet3" - Update query

The queries use the parameter that shows up on the continous form for order #

So the code opens the form, which has the parameter already in it, then the code continues to execute the queries using the field on the form to parse the data.

I think the issue is here:
Set rs1 = db.OpenRecordset("[F_Table1]")

If I'm understanding correctly F_Table1 is a form and you are trying to open it as a table.

On other thing, have you tried stepping through the code using "F8" to see exactly which line is causeing the error?

I have figured it out; however, the code locks up if I try to do anything else on my computer:


Function loopthrough()
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim rstsubform As DAO.Recordset

    Set db = CurrentDb()
    Set rstsubform = Forms!f_table1.Form.Recordset
   
   
    str1 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet1"
    str2 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet2"
    str3 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet3"
    str4 = "Q_UpdateCalcSheet4"

   rstsubform.MoveFirst
    Do While Not rstsubform.EOF
   
DoCmd.OpenQuery str1
DoCmd.OpenQuery str2
DoCmd.OpenQuery str3
DoCmd.OpenQuery str4

rstsubform.MoveNext
           
            Loop
rstsubform.Close
Set rstsubform = Nothing
 
End Function

Probably because the form has to have focus, but I'm just guessing.
