I use Access 2010

If there's no information in the field (ContactID) and I click on this button within my form with the following code in my click event. I get a Run-time error '3077':  Syntax error (missing operator) in expression.


Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
DoCmd.OpenForm "form1"
With Forms("form1")
      Set rs = .RecordsetClone
      rs.FindFirst "ContactID = " & Me.ContactID
      If rs.NoMatch = True Then
             MsgBox "Sorry, Can't Find ContactID"
             Set rs = Nothing
             Exit Sub
      End If
       .Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
End With
Set rs = Nothing

How do I stop this error from appearing by tweaking the above code?

Thanks.

If this is a new record, or there is no data entered in the ContactID field, you could change:

rs.FindFirst "ContactID = " & Me.ContactID

to

rs.FindFirst "ContactID = " & NZ(Me.ContactID, 0)

Assuming that you have not contactID values of zero, this will result in the message:

"Sorry, Can't Find ContactID"

But I think you would be better served by adding a line at the top of the button Click event:

If me.ContactID & "" = "" then
    msgbox "Please enter or select a contact ID"
    Exit Sub
endif

By the way,

you don't really need to set the reference to the recordset,  you could use:

With Forms("form1").RecordsetClone
      .FindFirst "ContactID = " & Me.ContactID
      If .NoMatch = True Then
             MsgBox "Sorry, Can't Find ContactID"
      else
            Forms("form1").Bookmark = .Bookmark
      end if
End With

And if the form this is running from is "form1", you can replace:

Forms("form1")

with:

me

So it would look like:

With me.RecordsetClone
      .FindFirst "ContactID = " & Me.ContactID
      If .NoMatch = True Then
             MsgBox "Sorry, Can't Find ContactID"
      else
             me.Bookmark = .Bookmark
      endif
End With

I don't know what other code you have following this With/End With construct, but it wouldn't normally be much.  Since you are not instantiating the rs, you don't need to set it to nothing, and probably don't need the "Exit Sub" line if you add an Else clause before the Bookmark line.

I cannot tell from your code whether ContactID as mentioned above in me.ContactID is the name of a control, or a field.  You should probably consider using a naming convention for your controls (txt_ContactID, cbo_ContactID, lst_ContactID) and might want to use brackets around your field names in code me.[ContactID] when referring to a field rather than a control.

This will make it easier to read your code later, as you get more experienced at this.
