Need a simple way to check if a file exists in access so if the file does not exist it bypasses the query. The code I attached works if you step through the code using F8, But if you run the code it blows through the err checks and trys to run the query. Any suggestions would be great.
Dir ("SurveyTbl")
If Err.Number = 3078 Then GoTo dorest

    CurrentDb.Execute "E2SurveyTblQryAppend"
  


dorest:

Dir () doesn't return an error if the file is not found.
It just returns ""
