Why am I getting "object doesn't support this property or method (438)"

I am getting the following error in my Access 2010 code:

object doesn't support this property or method (438)

Here is my code:

Public Function TestSamples() As Boolean
    Pass = True
   
    On Error GoTo Err_TestSamples
   
    Dim Clnt As New clsClient
    Clnt.Clear
    LoadClientTestData (Clnt)  <---Get error message on this line.

Private Sub LoadClientTestData(ByRef Clnt As clsClient)  <-- This is the subroutine being called.  Both sets of code are in the same module.

clsClient is a Class Module created in Access.

If I avoid the subroutine and put the code that the routine was supposed to do below this point, the class works as expected.  I want to be able to put this code in a subroutine so it can be called from multiple sources.

I have searched on the error but have only found the error related to form controls.

Clnt is a function in Access   CInt()

Try using a different variable name.

    Dim CXlnt As New clsClient
    CXlnt.Clear
    LoadClientTestData (CXlnt)

What does the definition of LoadClientTestData look like?

My variable is CLNT as in "Client".  It is not CINT as in Convert to Integer.

Kaufmed,

This was included in the original post:

"Private Sub LoadClientTestData(ByRef Clnt As clsClient)  <-- This is the subroutine being called.  Both sets of code are in the same module."

Is this what you were asking me for?

I've never tried to pass a Class object variable before.  

What happens if you change

Private Sub LoadClientTestData(ByRef Clnt As clsClient)  

to

Private Sub LoadClientTestData(ByRef Clnt As Object)

No. I was looking for something along the lines of:

Private Sub LoadClientTestData(ByRef Clnt As clsClient)
    ' Relevant code lines here
End Sub

Open in new window


My thought is that you have a line inside the class that is actually throwing the error, but it's being "flagged" as being on the line you experience. Just a guess, though  : \

I'm not sure you can pass a Class as an argument ... are you ?

Kaufmed,

here is the subroutine - LoadClientTestData:

Private Sub LoadClientTestData(ByRef Clnt As clsClient)

    Clnt.Clear
   
    'Data - Default = ""
    Clnt.CompanyName = "Excellis, Inc."
    Clnt.Addr_1 = "30856 Groesbeck Highway"
    Clnt.Addr_2 = "Suite A"
    Clnt.SuiteNo = "A"
    Clnt.City = "Roseville"
    Clnt.State = "MI"
    Clnt.Zip = "48066"
    Clnt.Landline = "586.555.1212"
    Clnt.MobilePhone = "586.555.1212"
    Clnt.FaxNo = "888.555.1212"
    Clnt.WebAddress_1 = "Excellis.com"
    Clnt.WebAddress_2 = ""
    Clnt.EmailAddress_1 = "info@excellis.com"
    Clnt.EmailAddress_2 = ""
    Clnt.CompanyTagline = "Your data matters to us along with a check."
    Clnt.Personalization_1 = ""
    Clnt.Personalization_2 = ""
    Clnt.CompanyAlias = ""

End Sub

DatabaseMX:

I thought all Objects were Classes.  So I am assuming that a Class Module could be passed as a parameter.

Where did you assign all of the properties (fields) of the class.  You have to define these somewhere, otherwise you will get an error on Clint.CompanyName

HainKurt,

Your solution worked.  I don't know why but it did.

Change LoadClientTestData (Clnt)
-->
LoadClientTestData Clnt

Thank you,
Matt

<<My variable is CLNT as in "Client".  It is not CINT as in Convert to Integer.>>

  That's going to be really confusing for anyone looking at this code now or in the future.  I would change it to something else and avoid using that.

Jim.

it is a sub, not function, so it does not require "(..)"

I agree with HainKurt's assessment, but alternatively you could do:

Call LoadClientTestData (Clnt)

Open in new window


if you were set on using parentheses  : )
