Error 3078 can't find table

When I run the code below I get a 3078 error that it can't find the table or query.  It is happening at this line:
                strSQL = "INSERT INTO tbl_HISTORY( CLIENT_ID ) VALUES (Me.CLIENT_ID)"
                CurrentDb.Execute strSQL1, dbFailOnError

If the answer to the msgbox is yes, than I want it to create a new record in tbl_HISTORY and then display CLI_HISTORY_subform using that new record.  Can anyone tell me why I'm getting this error?
Dim strSQL As String

 

 DoCmd.Hourglass True

 Application.Echo False, "Processing ..."

 With Me

   Select Case tabClients

     Case 0    ' First TabPage (General)

       ' Do nothing. SourceObject loaded.



     Case 1     ' Second TabPage (Academic)

        'Load source objects on Academic tab

        If .stuSchedule_subform.SourceObject <> "frm_STU_SCHEDULE" Then

          .stuSchedule_subform.SourceObject = "frm_STU_SCHEDULE"

        End If

        If .academics_subform.SourceObject <> "frm_STU_ACAD" Then

          .academics_subform.SourceObject = "frm_STU_ACAD"

        End If



     Case 2    ' Third TabPage (History)

        'Find client history.

        If DLookup("CLIENT_ID", "tbl_HISTORY", "CLIENT_ID = " & Me.CLIENT_ID) Then

           .CLI_HISTORY_subform.SourceObject = "frm_CLI_HISTORY"

        Else

           'If no history is available, prompt user to add client history.

           If MsgBox("No client history available.  Would you like to add it now?", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then

For one thing, you will need to alter the SQL statement builder:strSQL = "INSERT INTO tbl_HISTORY (CLIENT_ID) VALUES (" & Me.CLIENT_ID & ")"

if client_ID is Number

strSQL = "INSERT INTO tbl_HISTORY( CLIENT_ID ) VALUES (" & Me.CLIENT_ID & ")"


if client_ID is Text

strSQL = "INSERT INTO tbl_HISTORY( CLIENT_ID ) VALUES ('" & Me.CLIENT_ID & "')"

Assuming a numeric ID, Give this a try:

strSQL = "INSERT INTO tbl_HISTORY( CLIENT_ID ) VALUES (" & Me.CLIENT_ID & ")"
                CurrentDb.Execute strSQL1, dbFailOnError

I corrected the syntax of the INSERT INTO statement, but I still get the same error message.

and make sure that the name of table and field names are correct ( do they really have underscore on the name?)

if not you have to enclosed them in square brackets []

Table name and field names are correct.

It says it can't find the input table ".  It's like it's not even reading the table name for some reason.

Your comment suggests you have the table name wrong in the SQL statement

                'Insert a new record into in tbl_CLI_HISTORY
                strSQL = "INSERT INTO tbl_HISTORY( CLIENT_ID ) VALUES (Me.CLIENT_ID)"

The comment is wrong--I've quadruple-checked the table name in the code. "tbl_HISTORY" is correct.

mkelly2384,As cap1 mentioned, the table/column names must match exactly.  For example, a stray leading or trailing space in a name can muck things up.Also, please post the exact syntax you tried to use, and confirm whether CLIENT_ID is numeric or text.  It would not shock me if the lack of a space between your table name and the open parenthesis for your column list upsets Access, which is why I included a space there.  (SQL Server would not have "cared" about that.)Patrick

I've checked the names of the table and fields 5 times now...

Shouldn't it say "Cannot find the input table "tbl_HISTORY""  instead of Cannot find the input table "  (with one set of quotes only)

I did a compact and repair, but still getting the same error.

the CLIENT_ID is number from the codes above

       If DLookup("CLIENT_ID", "tbl_HISTORY", "CLIENT_ID = " & Me.CLIENT_ID) Then
           .CLI_HISTORY_subform.SourceObject = "frm_CLI_HISTORY"

Oh sorry...CLIENT_ID is numeric.

Decompile shows no errors.

Rather than inserting, I first tried to do something like this:
DoCmd.SelectObject "CLI_HISTORY_subform"
DoCmd.GoToRecord acActiveDataObject, , acNewRec

but that didn't work.  Didn't know if I could create a new record in a subform anyway.  Would that be better than inserting if it was done right?

I believe this is incorrect.

You need to make the syntactical adjustments suggested to the insert statement and change your Exectute statement to this to be consistent:

CurrentDb.Execute strSQL, dbFailOnError


(It looks like you are setting strSQL, but attempting to run strSQL1)

Also place the following line at the top under Option Compare Database of your code module if you don't have it already:

Option Explicit

That will trap any undeclared variables as compile errors,  which is very helpful in debugging things.
