Experts,

I am helping a non-profit organization; they have an Access database that cannot open in other than "design view". Apparently, the database was working fine but since Friday of last week they cannot open this particular form..
The database has many forms and they all open just fine.

I am not familiar with Access and have no idea how to troubleshoot, can anyone help??

Thank you,

Well ... either upload the db (remove any sensitive information) or ... determine where the error is occurring and post the relevant information.  There a many ways that error can be rendered.

It sounds like the issue is not in the form but in the form's record source.

What is the SQL for the form's record source?

I am sorry, don't mean to abuse; I actually deleted many other forms on my previous upload, the above file opens just fine, but when I copy the VB code to the "actual" the issue continues "Data Type Mismatch in criteria expression"..

Here is the actual file (with everything), can you help?

Thanks a bunch.

Ok ... s/b fixed - attached.  Same issue. See screenshot ... The Filter and OrderBy properties had a 'stuck' string ... which is causing this error.  There is no 'VB code' associated with the error.
