When executing the attached SQL statement in a function I get "Error 3075 in query expression 'PUB_INvcHead.CustNum=tblCust.CustNum INNER JOIN PUB_ShipTo ON (PUB_InvcDtl.CustNum = PUB_Shipto.CustNum' ". I created the statement by copying a workable SQL statement. I added the PUB_ShipTo to it. What is missing? I cannot see anything amiss.
Please let me know if there is a better clearer method of attaching the code.
Thanks

  Nope, that's it.
<< What is missing? >>

 Probably a ).   I would try and break it down.  First, chop off the WHERE and ORDER BY clauses and try executing.  If an error, then eliminate all the SELECT's fields except for one field.  If it still fails (and this is probably where it is), then it's the joins.
User the query designer to get the join syntax you need.  You can design it graphically and then switch to SQL view, or play in SQL view and build the statement up slowly switching to design view as you progress.  If you get an error, then you know what you just did is at fault.

BTW,  you've got a couple of these in there:
& Chr(34) & Chr(34)
 Which doesn't look quite right.  Either you meant to stick a value in there and didn't, or you included an extra quote (chr$(34)) by mistake.

I'm no MS Access expert but I have never seen # characters used that way in SQL.

I would try replacing:

#" & [Forms]![frmInvEntry]![txtInvDate] & "#

with:

" & [Forms]![frmInvEntry]![txtInvDate] & "

JimD,
   Thanks for the comments. To create the SQL statement that generates the error I copied from the attached code. The attached runs fine. I added some fields and the last INNER JOIN for the PUB_ShipTo table. So doing as you suggest, eliminating the last INNER JOIN I know the statement will work. Also I did create the query graphically first. The way I have the last INNER JOIN is the way it is when I switch the graphical query to SQL. Is there anything else I can try?
strSQL = "SELECT tblCust.CustID, tblCust.Name, tblCust.SupplierNumber, " & _
    "PUB_InvcHead.CustNum, PUB_InvcHead.InvoiceDate, Format([InvoiceDate]," & Chr(34) & invdat & Chr(34) & ") AS InvDatEDI, " & _
    "PUB_InvcHead.InvoiceType, PUB_InvcHead.InvoiceNum, PUB_InvcHead.InvoiceAmt, PUB_InvcDtl.InvoiceLine, " & _
    "qrsOrderHedDtlInv.OrderNum, qrsOrderHedDtlInv.PONum, " & _
    "IIf([ItemNum] Is Not Null And [ItemNum]<>" & Chr(34) & Chr(34) & ",[ItemNum],1) AS ItNum, " & _
    "PUB_InvcDtl.PartNum, PUB_InvcDtl.ShipDate, PUB_InvcDtl.PackNum, PUB_InvcDtl.OurShipQty, " & _
    "PUB_InvcDtl.UnitPrice, NZ([XPartNum]," & Chr(34) & Chr(34) & ") AS CustPNum, PUB_InvcDtl.ExtPrice, PUB_InvcDtl.PackLine, tblCust.EDICode " & _
    "FROM ((PUB_InvcHead INNER JOIN PUB_InvcDtl ON PUB_InvcHead.InvoiceNum = PUB_InvcDtl.InvoiceNum) " & _
    "LEFT JOIN qrsOrderHedDtlInv ON (PUB_InvcDtl.OrderNum = qrsOrderHedDtlInv.OrderNum) AND " & _
    "(PUB_InvcDtl.OrderLine = qrsOrderHedDtlInv.OrderLine)) INNER JOIN tblCust ON PUB_InvcHead.CustNum = tblCust.CustNum " & _
    "WHERE (((PUB_InvcHead.CustNum) =" & [Forms]![frmInvEntry]![cmbCustNum] & ") And " & _

And if you take the statement that is giving you an error and past it into SQL view and attempt to switch to graphical view it does not give you an error and runs fine?
I don't understand why your getting a syntax error then...

JimD,
   Not sure what was missing initially but I did as you suggested and pasted the SQL statement into  SQL view. I received the same error. So I copied only the FROM to before the WHERE part of the statement that worked in the SQL view and pasted this into the SQL statement in the code and it worked. Thanks.

Probably a )  and that's why I came back and I asked again; those are HARD to spot.
I often go back and forth with the designer until I figure out where the problem is.
