I want to write an If clause that will exit back to a Form if a condition is met.

Here is what I have:

If [Forms]![frm_Date_Selection]![Frame166].Value = 5 Then
    MsgBox "Please Select Report to Run."
    End Sub
End If
If [Forms]![frm_Date_Selection]![Frame137].Value = 13 Then
    MsgBox "Please Select From Month."
    End Sub
End If
If [Forms]![frm_Date_Selection]![List120].Value Is Null Then
    MsgBox "Please Select From Date."
    End Sub
End If

Open in new window


Can you help me out?

Thanks

Glen

First, give the frame a meaningful name, to make your code more comprehensible.  Next, set up a Select Case statement to deal with the possible values.  For exiting to a form, do you mean to cancel another action and return to the calling form, or opening another form?

Here is some sample code for dealing with choices in an option group:

Private Sub cmdMultipleContactsQuery_Click()

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
   
   intMethod = Nz(Me![fraMethodQuery].Value, 1)
   
   Select Case intMethod
   
      Case 1
         DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmDocPropsQuery"
         
      Case 3
         DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmTypeTextQuery"
      
      Case 2
         DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmMailMergeQuery"
      
      Case 4
         DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmBookmarksQuery"
         
      Case 5
         DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmCatalogMergeQuery"
         
      Case 6
         DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmFormFieldsQuery"
            
      Case 7
         DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmDocVarsQuery"
            
   End Select
   
   Parent.Visible = False
   
ErrorHandlerExit:
   Exit Sub

ErrorHandler:
   MsgBox "Error No: " & Err.Number _
      & " in " & Me.ActiveControl.Name & " procedure; " _
      & "Description: " & Err.Description
   Resume ErrorHandlerExit

End Sub
