OpenArgs issues

Hi,

I have the following code on an OpenForm event:

Dim companyID As Long
Dim BatchID As Long
Dim strIDs() As Long
If Len(Me.OpenArgs & "") > 0 Then
    strIDs = Split(Me.OpenArgs, "|")
    companyID = strIDs(0)
    BatchID = strIDs(1)
    Me.txt_customer_id = companyID
    Me.txt_batch_id = BatchID
    
End If

Open in new window


The OpenArgs are being passed from one form to another with:

DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_reference_data", OpenArgs:=customer_id & "|" & batch_number


The on OpenForm codes errors out at strIDs = Split(Me.OpenArgs, "|") with:

RunTime Error 13 : Type Mismatch

Customer_id is = Text
Batch_number is = Number

Should I be putting quotes around the Batch Number or something?

You have CustomerID defined as Long.  You need to change it to String

How have you declared srtIDs in the form open event?  Try:

Dim strIDs() as string
