Not sure what you mean -- macros don't have a form view.  In Access 2010, they have more features than in earlier versions, and macros created in Access 2010 are not usable if the database is opened in 2007.  Can you be more specific about your problem?  All the PDF shows is the error message.

Also please post image files for us to view.

Image files are viewable directly in the thread, ...PDF's (currently) are not.

But the error is self explanatory.

Under certain conditions "Refresh" is not available.

So can you take a step back and explain what you are trying to do with this macro?
Along with this, post all of the macro actions up until the error line...

Perhaps all that is needed is to save the current Record
Action: RunCommand
Argument: SaveRecord
