Combo box Not in List

I have combo box based on field from table.  I want to add new item that is not In my combo box. In combo box cboProductType on Not in List event I have this code:

On Error GoTo ErrorH
   
      Dim strTmp As String
      Dim dbs As DAO.Database
   
    'Get confirmation that this is not just a spelling error.
    strTmp = "Add '" & NewData & "' as a new Expense Type?"
    If MsgBox(strTmp, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2 + vbQuestion, "Not in list") = vbYes Then
   
        'Append the NewData as a record in the tblProduct table.
        strTmp = "INSERT INTO tblProduct ( ProductTypeDescription ) " & _
            "SELECT """ & NewData & """ AS ProductTypeDesription;"        
                dbs.Execute strTmp, dbFailOnError        
        'Notify Access about the new record, so it requeries the combo.
        Response = acDataErrAdded
    Else
        Response = acDataErrDisplay
    End If
   
ErrorH:
     MsgBox "When trying to process this new record add, error happened" & _
           vbCrLf & "Please contact the program designer and " & _
           "report the error as follows" & vbCrLf & _
           "Error #:     " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & _
           "Description: " & Err.Description
    Resume Next


When I enter new item I got message from error handler Error#91
Description: Object variable or With block variable not set

Any Idea?

You haven't included a SET statement for your dbs Object.  try this:


On Error GoTo ErrorH
    
      Dim strTmp As String
      Dim dbs As DAO.Database
       Set dbs = CurrentDB   '<<<<<---- add this line

Open in new window

You'll also need an Exit statement before your error handler to make the code exit normally if there are no errors:


On Error GoTo ErrorH
    
      Dim strTmp As String
      Dim dbs As DAO.Database
      Set dbs = CurrentDB   '<<<<<---- add this line

    'Get confirmation that this is not just a spelling error.
    strTmp = "Add '" & NewData & "' as a new Expense Type?"
    If MsgBox(strTmp, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2 + vbQuestion, "Not in list") = vbYes Then
    
        'Append the NewData as a record in the tblProduct table.
        strTmp = "INSERT INTO tblProduct ( ProductTypeDescription ) " & _
            "SELECT """ & NewData & """ AS ProductTypeDesription;"         
                dbs.Execute strTmp, dbFailOnError        
        'Notify Access about the new record, so it requeries the combo.
        Response = acDataErrAdded
    Else
        Response = acDataErrDisplay
    End If
    Exit Sub  ' (or function) <<<<----- add this
 
ErrorH:
     MsgBox "When trying to process this new record add, error happened" & _
           vbCrLf & "Please contact the program designer and " & _
           "report the error as follows" & vbCrLf & _
           "Error #:     " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & _
           "Description: " & Err.Description
    Resume Next
