Need vba coding to delete all lines shown in a form coding module.

Please note the following VBA code where I attempt to delete any of sfSubForm's coding modules...  For some reason when I do a Call FillSubForm("Table1") twice it fails to delete the coding the second time around and get the following error per image:

Also please note the uploaded sample provided here:
https://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/ee-stuff/8144-DBSample.zip

And also this is a continuation of question:

Sub DeletefromForms(frmname)

    Dim mod1 As Module, strType As String

    'If form has module, then check contents of first line
    'for "Module", and delete the first line if it is present.
    'Free module reference resource when done.
    DoCmd.OpenForm frmname
    If Forms(frmname).HasModule = True Then
        Set mod1 = Forms(frmname).Module
        If mod1.Find("Module", 1, 1, 1, 40) = True Then
            mod1.DeleteLines 1, 1
