WEIRD ERROR While updating an Access form recordset (prompts for old field)
Posted on 2012-04-03
I have updated the name of a field in the table from which a form and its subform draw information. The recordsource property is empty at design, but is filled in through code. The thing is, there is one field on the table whose name I changed. I updated ALL the objects/forms/components to the new field name, and STILL, when it runs the code line where it feeds the recordsource property of the form, I get an inputbox asking me for the value of the old field that is no longer ANYWHERE in the form. Besides, the query I assign to the form is valid (verified), and it sure does not include that old field name. And the funny thing is, it does not happen every time; just about 80% of the times. It seems as if there is some kind of residue in a cache file or something... I don't understand. Also, I am running that database from a network.
I AM SO SICK OF ACCESS BUGS.... Version 14, and you'd think they would have taken care of this basic stuff....
Anyone has an idea? Thanks so much.
