I'm using the code below to drill down (link) to another form. I would like to pop up a message box if no records are found. Thanks

DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Accounting_Events", , , "[Event Type]='" & Me.Event_Type & "'"

add a dcount() to test if there are records  to show before opening the form

if dcount("*",<record source of the form>,"[Event Type]='" & Me.Event_Type & "'") =0 then
    msgbox "No records"
    exit sub
else
'open form


DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Accounting_Events", , , "[Event Type]='" & Me.Event_Type & "'"

end if

Error Message can' find the field referenced in the expression:

If DCount("*", ([tbl_Accounting_Events]), "[Event Class]='" & Me.Event_Class & "'") = 0 Then
     MsgBox "No records"
     Exit Sub
 Else
 'open form


 DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Accounting_Events", , , "[Event Class]='" & Me.Event_Class & "'"

 End If

Hi,

you must enclose that in double quotes:
DCount("*", "tbl_Accounting_Events", "[Event Class]='" & Me.Event_Class & "'")

Open in new window


Cheers,

Christian
