How write values to a 2nd table

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-05
I have a form bound to a specific table but when a checkbox is checked (after update event), and want certain values to be written to a 2nd table.  Here is my code but it is not working.  Can someone offer a suggestion?

Private Sub chkbx10WindEp_AfterUpdate()

    If Me.chkbx10WindEp = True Then
        Me.txt10WindEpQty = Me.txtQty
        Me.txt10WindEp = "#10 Window Envelope"
        Dim rs As dao.Recordset
        Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblEnvelopeInventory")
        rs!JobN = Me.txtJobN
        rs!CompanyName = Me.txtCompanyName
        rs!EnvelopeStyle = Me.txt10WindEp
        rs!Qty = "-" & Me.txtQty
        rs!TranxDate = Date
        Set rs = Nothing
    End If

End Sub
