I am working on a project that adds a newrecord to a recordset based on information contained in another recordset.  I can't get the new record to add for some reason . I am attaching code.

what is the sql of query "qryWashedTrays"?  are you using more than one table in this query

why not just use the table as the domain for recordset rsWashed ?

I was told that it is better to use a query. The query is all the fields in the table. Just for kicks, I tried what you suggested and it didn't change.

I have done this many times and never had a problem. Its just weird.

why do you need a complete recordset of rsCoated from query "qryCoatedTrays"

and here you are testing the TrayID to be the same as the one displayed in the form

 If rstCoated!TrayID = Forms![frmScanTray]![txtTrayID] Then


why not, change your query "qryCoatedTrays" to have a criteria , where TrayID=" & Forms![frmScanTray]![txtTrayID]

then test accordingly

if rstCoated.Eof then exit function

'place code to add record to rsWahed here

<I was told that it is better to use a query.>
Told by who?, and under what circumstances...?

In any event, ...if the query is not update-able, this simply wont work...

<I have done this many times and never had a problem. >
With the exact same query?
