Hello all

I have a tabbed form that when I Select a Location and then click a Command Button it is supposed to create a set number of records for input by the user.

If I F9 the first line of that Command Buttons code and F8 to step thru it it all works....

However if I get rid of the F9 on that first line and just let the code run it errors and gives me the
Run-Time error 2501
RunComman action was canceled...

I am attaching a generic version of the db so you can see it for yourself.....

The form to open is [tfrm_Reporting]

There is ONE highlighted combobox field to select a location name.  (there's only one)  select it and click the Command Button right beside it captioned "Create Input Form"

that is when it is to create the exact number of records I want input.

Try changing that portion of the code - using recordset code:

        Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
    ' **** AMTOut ****
        Me.[tsfrm_dta_TransactDetails_AmtOut].Form.Visible = True
        With Me.[tsfrm_dta_TransactDetails_AmtOut]
            Set rs = .Form.RecordsetClone
            
            .Visible = True
            
           ' DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdRecordsGoToNew
           
            For j = j To lngNbrMachs
                rs.AddNew
                rs![MachNbr] = j
                rs![TransactTypeID] = 2
                rs![TransactAmt] = 0
                rs!ReportingID = Me.ReportingID
                rs.Update
            Next
            rs.Close
            .Form.Requery
            .SetFocus
            '.Form.AllowAdditions = False
        End With
    

Open in new window


It looks like there are issues with later parts of your code as well - so try to isolate this part and test it before moving on to the next.

Here you go.  I revised your code a bit.  As an aside, it looks like you're still making use of LookUp fields in your tables.  You really would be better off without them as I mentioned before.

Irog.......

Looking at the code I think you are doing what MBiz was suggesting...... Am I right in that?????  

As you and MBiz have helped a lot in the past you know I am very very limited in what I understand to this point.

I need to correct myself.  It was someone else I advised about not using Lookup fields.  So in case no one has mentioned this yet, let me just paste a bit of what I posted in another question.

Lookup Fields --  why oh why did Microsoft add this feature!
I cannot emphasize enough the magnitude of avoiding using Lookup Fields in your table.  It's purpose was to make it supposedly easy for a novice to work with related tables.  However, it causes more problems than it solves and I think it actually makes it more confusing for those trying to grasp the concept of relational tables.  

Every newcomer to Access read and heed this article:
The Evils of Lookup Fields in Tables    Adding one more bullet to the list in this article is the inability of Child and Master fields to link properly if one of the fields is a Lookup field.

I saw Miriam's code after I posted but you're right about them being pretty much the same.  That's because great minds think alike :-)
Mine just has a nested loop so that it covers all 3 transaction types.

By lookup fields in my tables you are specifically referring to the Lookup tab on the table setup where my SELECT statement is correct???????????

And by the way................for You and for Mbiz........

I'm just now seeing what you guys meant by using the With statements a while back.......... I'm a might bit slow I guess.... Now this rst stuff............  whew ......... ;-))))

I've never benchmarked it but I'm almost certain that looping through a Dao recordeset would be faster than the form based approach, which involves the bulk of the user interface.

You're right about the lookup tab in your table design.  Avoid that like the plague.  :-)
