Clearing information in Access form

I am trying to add a button to my form that will clear the information from the form when clicked.

This is an unbound form with information coming from different tables, so attaching the macro for adding a new record isn't working. It won't clear a list box that I have on the form.

I have a piece of code that I put behind the button, and it works the first time. But when I try to use it again it stops working.

Private Sub cmdClearForm_Click() 
'Create a command button called 'cmdClearForm' on your form and create this event

On Error Resume Next

'Create label on form called 'lblDisplayMessagePleaseWait' and set visible = false
lblDisplayMessagePleaseWait.Visible = True
me.repaint
Application.Echo False
DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.FormName, acSaveNo
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmYour_Form_Name_Here", acNormal

End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

On Error Resume Next

DoCmd.Maximize
Application.Echo True

End Sub

Open in new window


I got this code from another website, so I am sure I could be using it wrong.

Thank you!

Try this.

Private Sub cmdClearForm_Click()
Dim ctl As Control
For Each ctl In Me.Controls
Select Case ctl.ControlType
Case acTextBox, acComboBox, acListBox, acCheckBox
ctl.Value = Null
Case Else
End Select
Next ctl
End Sub

Open in new window

Do I only list the type of items I have on my form in line 5 (acComboBox, acListBox)?
