I put a double click event so that when you click on a name,  it takes the user to the form on which the name is located.  Now I tried to use that same on in a different place and it is returning an error.  It works elsewhere just not here.  See code and attached database.  

Private Sub Policy_Name_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
   DoCmd.SearchForRecord acDataForm, "Contact Form", acFirst, "[ContactID] = " & Nz(Me.ContactID, 0)
   Me.Parent.TabCtl0 = 1
End Sub

Open in new window

This code works on the copy of actions and opps subform.  But it does not work on expiring in 7 days subform.  WHen I double click the policy name in the expiring in 7 days subform is throwing an error.  

See the contact form and go to actions tab and you can try it there.

One big difference between the expires in 7 days and the copy of actions and opps subforms is the expires in 7 days is populated based on a query.   How would that change the code.

I think the reason is because the expiring in 7 days subform is pulling data from a query.  So the question is how do I change the code.
