Hello Expert,

I am trying to develop an if statement for my form in VBA:  

If Query "XYZ" is open then DoCmd.CloseQuery "XYZ"

Not sure if possible. I appreciate your help.

you can just call a command to close the query,

if the query is open it will close the query

DoCmd.CloseQuery "XYZ"


if the query is close, nothing will happen..

or you can use this

if SysCmd(acSysCmdGetObjectState, acQuery,  "XYZ") <> 0 then

DoCmd.CloseQuery "XYZ"

end if
0

The if statement generated a compile error:  Method or data member not found.

I resorted to your first suggestion.  

"you can just call a command to close the query,
if the query is open it will close the query

DoCmd.CloseQuery "XYZ"

if the query is close, nothing will happen.."


It worked only if I type it exactly as follows:

DoCmd.Close acQuery, "XYZ"

Thank you for your help.

The VBA wording that worked for me is:

DoCmd.Close acQuery, "XYZ"
 
and NOT

 DoCmd.CloseQuery "XYZ"

Expert's suggestion helped.
