reference question: above.

I have the code below working in 2003 vba..

But Office 2010 vba gives me an error on line:

Function CopyFilesJpg2()
Dim rs
Dim pathname, newpathname, itemname, picname As String
pathname = "C:\Images\"
newpathname = "C:\Images\New\"
Me.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM NoPic_Picture_NotAll" <<<<---error here...invalid use of "me"...
Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
While Not rs.EOF
  itemname = rs!material_no
  picname = rs!primary_image2
  If itemname <> picname Then
    FileCopy pathname & picname, newpathname & itemname & ".JPG"
  End If
Set rs = Nothing

End Function

The code assumes it is located in a form module.

If it is not, it doesn't make much sense as a routine.

But the error suggests you have placed it in a standard module.
