I have copied a database renamed & saved it. When I open the original Db and then press the button to 'Load New Events' it works fine. When I open the copied Db and press the 'Load New Events' I get the error message "The expression On Click you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: Return without GoSub"

However if I F11 to open the code then press the button to 'Load New Events' without even looking at the code it works.

Any expert have any ideas what is going on here?

Thanks

You could have one of several issues. Make a backup before you try any of these suggestions:

1. You may simply be missing a Reference. Open the new database, then open the VBA Editor and click Debug - Compile. If you have any missing references, the compile process should find those, and you'll get an errors that will point you in that direction. Remake the referenced, and then continue with the Compile. Fix any errors, and continue doing this until the menuitem is disabled.

2. You may have some corruption in the database. To try and fix that, first Compact the database, then Compile it (as above) and then Compact it again.

In addition to Scott's comments, the name of the database may have some importance in the code that could be causing the copied/renamed database to fail.

If the suggestions in his comment don't help, post the block of code that is failing.

>>> that could be causing the copied/renamed database to fail.

A quick test for that would be to move the original, working database temporarily, and place the copy in the original folder, giving it the same name as the original database.
