Dear Experts,

I have recently run the performance analyser over the forms in my Access 2010 database and it suggested I add an option Explicit Statement to one of the forms.  However in doing so it breaks one piece of code, I believe I need to declare all the variables, but I'm not sure how to do this on this piece of code:

Private Sub UpdateRecipients_Click()
Me.Recipients = ""
RecipientsList.BoundColumn = 3
For Each Item In RecipientsList.ItemsSelected
    Recipients = Recipients + RecipientsList.ItemData(Item) + "; "
Next Item

Me.RecipientsVisual = ""
RecipientsList.BoundColumn = 2
For Each Item In RecipientsList.ItemsSelected
    Me.RecipientsVisual = Me.RecipientsVisual + RecipientsList.ItemData(Item) + ", "
Next Item
End Sub

Open in new window


Can anybody help?

Option Explicit forces the programmer to declare all variables which is good programming practice.

If using it breaks the code, it is because you have one or more undeclared variables.  Access should show you your undeclared variables when you execute the code.
