Show how to discover phantom linkage to Report.

I have developed 9 Subreports that are linked to a phantom query.  At one time I must have linked them to the "QFinalScore_LessGrinder_LessHatch" query, but I can find no current attachment or more importantly any place in Access Design asking for this subsequent queries of the Subreports. These queries  work fine.  I only have an issue when I open the Subreports themselves.

I expect this is very easy, but I have been frustrated a day now.

I have attached "SnapShots" and a copy of the database "PSAssm_2013_1120_1425"

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

PS:  I know this database structure is a mess.  I have not had a chance to run an overhaul.

Check the sorting and grouping options.   Usually stuff is hiding in there.

Jim,

Thanks

Grouping and Sorting does seem to have been the problem.

However,  I had delete them from srpt02WS, and I have now also removed them from srpt03, and srpt04Pipe.  All of them are still picking that same code.  It is hidden somewhere else.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Try conditional formatting.

Pat,

I do not understand what condition I would place in where.

Sorry, I do not know much.

You might have code in a conditional format that refers to a field in the query in question and that is forcing the prompt.  I know of no easy way to look at all the conditional formats but as long as you have isolated the problem to a particular form then you can go through the controls one at a time and open the conditional formatting dialog for that control to see if there is anything there.

Pat,

Thanks!

Microsoft help just came through.  The found a field shrunk and hidden behind the rest of the fields that had the phantom code.  It was in red.  I had over looked it, especially as I did not know what it does there.  It came form an early help suggestion.

Until next time.
