One way ... in your code from where ever

Call DeleteDuplicates()

And actually, just to keep the terminology straight, you have a Function in a Module.  Modules don't run or execute.  Functions (and Subs) do.

Thanks for setting me straight on the terminology.

Ok. I placed Call DeleteDuplicates() behind a button. And, even though it does delete, it gives me the following error.

Run-time error '3167:  Record is deleted.

Also, can I run this from a Macro?

Well ... that's really a different Question.  Close this Q and start a new Q ... posting the Code you have.

Macro ...yes - see image.

...and a bit more.

Your public function must be in a standalone "Module" (not just in the code for a form or Report), in order to be called from a Macro.

Many people think that simply by making a function "Public" will make it accessible to a macro.

If a function is public, yes, it can be called from anywhere using "code"

But in order to be seen by a macro, it also has to be in a standalone module.

Again, just FYI, for clarity.

Thanks.  Went online for additional help. Once I compact and repaired the database everything was fine and the macro ran.
