No Data Subform

I have a Dashboard/Switchboard Form that has a unbound subform, based on a query that looks at a score from an Answers Table.

On the Dashboard Form I have an unbound textbox "Text38"  which displays text based on the results of the percentage field in the subform, using the following code on the On Current Event:

If IsNull(Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage) Then
Me!Text38.Visible = False
ElseIf Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage >= 85 Then
Me!Text38 = "World Class"
ElseIf Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage < 85 And Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage >= 70 Then
Me!Text38 = "Good Operational Standard"
ElseIf Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage < 70 And Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage >= 40 Then
Me!Text38 = "Acceptable - Further Action Required"
ElseIf Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage < 40 And Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage > 0 Then
Me!Text38 = "Poor - Immediate Action Required"
ElseIf Me!mjpMaxScore!Percentage = 0 Then
Me!Text38 = "No Questions Answered or All Major N/C"
End IF

This works perfectly when there is data, but throws up "Runtime Error 2427 -you have entered an invalid expression that has no value"

How do I deal with this, please?

Thanks in anticipation.

 Three possible ways:

1. add error trapping and trap the error.

2. Actually check the recordcount of the subform before performing the calc

3. Use the following code:

Function AvoidError(n As Variant, varReplaceWith As Variant)

10      On Error GoTo AvoidError_Error

20      If IsError (n) then
            AvoidError = varReplaceWith
         Else
            AvoidError = Nz(n, varReplaceWith)
         End If

AvoidError_Exit:
30      Exit Function

AvoidError_Error:
40      AvoidError = varReplaceWith
50      Resume AvoidError_Exit

End Function

Open in new window


 Put that in a standard module, then in your calc, do:

 AvoidError(<value>,0)

I find the last to be simplest.

Many Thanks Jim

The Calc is from a Query which has several Calcs that display in the subform, ie. Sum of questions, sum of question answered etc.

Obviously if no questions have been asked or answered the query has no results.

The percentage calc is the one that is used to display the text.

Sorry for any confusion.

So, is this code in the Current event of the subform?

Jim, like that AvoidError function, why didn't I ever think of that?  So, to avoid a divide by zero error, you would do something like?

Percentage: AvoidError([SomeField]/[SomeOtherField], 99)

Then, as Jim said, before you test anything else, check to see whether the subform has any records.

If me.subformControlName.Form.Recordsetclone.RecordCount = 0 then
   'do something
   me.subformControlName.visible = false
Else
   'your code goes here.
End if
