Access 2010

I found code to do what I want but it does not work.  The code is:

[embed=snippet 8267437]Dim nLowKey As Integer
Dim nHighKey As Integer
Dim sKey As String
nLowKey = txtLowKey
nHighKey = txtHighKey
sKey = "HOLDER"
Dim qry As QueryDef
Dim sqlStmt As String
sqlStmt = "SELECT * FROM CARDS WHERE (" & sKey & " = " & nLowKey & ") OR (" & sKey & " = " & nHighKey & ");"
Set qry = CurrentDb().QueryDefs("qryTemp")
qry.SQL = sqlStmt
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "ExportCards", qry.Name, "D:\IBMCollection\Cards.csv"

Open in new window



It goes fine until the Set qry statement.  Then I get a Run-time 3265 Item not found in this collection

Where is qryTemp defined?  
In the DoCmd where is qry.Name defined?
Dim nLowKey As Integer
Dim nHighKey As Integer
Dim sKey As String
nLowKey = txtLowKey
nHighKey = txtHighKey
sKey = "HOLDER"
Dim qry As QueryDef
Dim sqlStmt As String
sqlStmt = "SELECT * FROM CARDS WHERE (" & sKey & " = " & nLowKey & ") OR (" & sKey & " = " & nHighKey & ");"
Set qry = CurrentDb().QueryDefs("qryTemp")
qry.SQL = sqlStmt
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "ExportCards", qry.Name, "D:\IBMCollection\Cards.csv"

Open in new window

Just create a query named "qryTemp". Put any old SQL statement in it. The SQL within will be replaced by the code you posted above.

If you create a dummy saved query named qryTemp with "Select 1 as stuff" your cose would then work.  You are overwriting the SQL of an EXISTING query.  If it doesn't exist, well BANG! is the result.

It worked!  The overwriting was mentioned but the fact it was an existing query escaped me.  Many thanks.
