Insert Into, 3134 syntax error

I have a module I got from an EE contributor that I've been using for a while to calculated the size of each object (tables, forms etc..) in an Access DB.
I've used it many times on my Win XP Access 2003 MDB's and I'm trying to run it for the first time on my Access 2010, Win 7 Pro DB.

I'm getting a syntax error on the 'Insert Into' command.

This is the statement that throws the error:
 DoCmd.RunSQL "Insert Into ObjectSizes (Name, Type, Size) Values ('" & objName & "','" & strObject & "'," & FileLen(strDbName) - blankSize & ")"

Open in new window


I did a debug.print to see what the string it was building looked like and this is it:

Insert Into ObjectSizes (Name, Type, Size) Values ('frmConversion','Forms',135168)

Open in new window


I checked how it runs on my XP Access 2003 MDB's and it still works fine and creates exactly the same string for the 'Insert Into'

Any ideas>?

Check (Name, Type, Size) not to be reserved words.

Try to change table field names, as objName, objType, objSize for example.

I created an ObjectSizes table in my access 2010 DB, with those three fields, and ran the "insert into" statement you posted from debug.print, without error.
However, when I created the NAME field in the table, it gave me a "reserved word" warning, perhaps this is the problem?  Does the table already exists when you run this command?

Thanks for your response and Merry Christmas!

The table exists when I run the command, it is created in this subroutine.

Here is the whole subroutine:

Public Sub GetObjectSizes()
'*************************************************************************************************
' Purpose: Routine to get the sizes of tables, forms, reports and modules in the current database.
'   Usage: After running this routine, look at table ObjectSizes.
'*************************************************************************************************

    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    
    Dim i As Integer, k As Integer, intObjectType As Integer
    Dim strObject As String, strDbName As String, objName As String
    Dim clearArr As Variant
    Dim blankSize As Long
    Dim DOC As Document
    Dim cont As Container
    Dim wsp As Workspace
    Dim db2 As Database
    Dim tdf As TableDef
    'C:\My Documents
    strDbName = "C:\My Documents\MJOTemp.mdb"
    clearArr = Array("Forms", "Reports", "Modules")  'doesn't work with Macros & queries
    
    If DCount("*", "MSysObjects", "MSysObjects.Name='ObjectSizes'") > 0 Then
        CurrentDb.TableDefs.Delete ("ObjectSizes")
    End If
    
    CurrentDb.Execute "CREATE TABLE ObjectSizes (" _

    Set wsp = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)

Try:
......
       & "vName TEXT(255), " _
        & "vType TEXT(10), " _
        & "vSize LONG)"
.......
Change references to field names in the rest of the code to be vName, vTypem and vSize and check.
