My code is not deleting the record I need deleted.  Can any one tell me what is wrong?

Dim dbs As Database
Dim qdfPassThrough As QueryDef
Dim qdfTemp As QueryDef

Set dbs = CurrentDb()

Set qdfPassThrough = dbs.CreateQueryDef("DeleteFormA")

qdfPassThrough.Connect = _
"ODBC;DSN=NewEis1;Description=NewEis1;APP=2007 Microsoft Office system;DATABASE=EIS;Trusted_Connection=Yes;TABLE=dbo.SCANFORMA"


qdfPassThrough.SQL = "DELETE * FROM SCANFORMA WHERE SCANFORMA.IMAGE = '000000006467'"

qdfPassThrough.ReturnsRecords = No

dbs.QueryDefs.Delete "DeleteFormA"
dbs.Close

If you run a select query with the same criteria does it return the expected record?

It is a sql pass through query and yes it deletes the record.

DELETE SCANFORMA
WHERE SCANFORMA.IMAGE like '000000006467'

The syntax for most SQL databases is:

DELETE FROM YourTAble WHERE <Your Criteria>

Note there is no * in that syntax.

i took out the *

the code now says

qdfPassThrough.SQL = "DELETE FROM SCANFORMA WHERE SCANFORMA.IMAGE = '000000006467'"

but it still does not delete the record.

OK, bear with me as I am still confused.  Is the code you posted originally the event procedure from the command button on the form?  If so, then which line of code is actually executing the pass-through query?

yes clicking the command button excecutes the code i sent earlier

This is the odbc connect string
qdfPassThrough.Connect = _
"ODBC;DSN=NewEis1;Description=NewEis1;APP=2007 Microsoft Office system;DATABASE=EIS;Trusted_Connection=Yes;TABLE=dbo.SCANFORMA"

and this (I thought) executed the code.
qdfPassThrough.SQL = "DELETE FROM SCANFORMA WHERE SCANFORMA.IMAGE = '000000006467'"


did i leave something out?

Yes, you left something out.
This simply assigns a the string between the quotes as the SQL statement for the querydef object
qdfPassThrough.SQL = "DELETE FROM SCANFORMA WHERE SCANFORMA.IMAGE = '000000006467'"

Now the querydef object has both connection info and an SQL statement.  Next, we need to execute it

qdfPassThrough.Execute


Don't overlook LSM's comment about the correct syntax for the SQL statement.  The pass-through query will be executed on the server so needs to be valid for that environment.
