does the form CPV_STD exists ? is it the correct name of the form?
is the form open?
is the form being used as a subform?

also try doing a compact and repair, then repeat the process of creating the query

What is the name of the form you are on? If there are any subforms involved, what are their names?

Yes, CPV_STD exists and it's the name the form I need, the form is not open. No Subform is involved.

If the form is not opened, access can't get a value from it. How would it know which record to look at?

What are you trying to accomplish here? Maybe we can help.

Even if the form is closed I should not be receiving that error, I should see an empty query.

My goal is to filter the record returned by the query based on a value I select from a form

According to your goal, it sounds like you will have the form opened. Correct?

Double check that you have the name of the form and the name of the field on the form spelled exactly right.

If that doesn't help, maybe you could upload a sample database with just those objects (and no confidential info), and we'll take a look.
