Subscript out of range Error Message

Hi,

I have a function that which used to include this line:

varParts_GBL_identifier = Split(Forms!fdlgMain.tvw1.SelectedItem, " | ")

To enable the function to execute its code on more than one control I changed it so that it would accept a parameter.

The function is now called like this:

Call PopulateGlobal("Forms!fdlgMain.tvw1.SelectedItem")

and the previous line has been replaced with this:

varParts_GBL_identifier = Split(strControl, " | ")

(strControl is the string parameter)

Unfortunately this now produces this error message:

Error 9: Subscript Out Of Range

Any suggestions as to why its giving this error message?

It looks like you're passing the string "Forms!fdlgMain.tvw1.SelectedItem" to your procedure, not the value of the control.  Try changing the Call to:

    Call PopulateGlobal(Forms!fdlgMain.tvw1.SelectedItem)
