Hi All

Another weird one from me.

I have an on delete procedure that if a condition is not met runs to END. Which is the only way I know to stop a procedure continuing. It works in the MDB and MDE but not when run under access runtime.

When run under access runtime I get "The execution of this application has stopped due to a runtime error" and then the only option is to shuts down

anybody got a clue why?

You'd have to show us the code. Generally something like that is caused by an unhandled error so first thing to do is add error handling to your procedure.

Change the END to Exit Sub or Exit Function.

If it works why not.

But what do you expect? You haven't revealed a single line of code.
