I have a main form & subform. The subform displays item data info with different prices ( ItemID, ItemCode, Price1,Price2, Price3) . When the user clicks on a field (say Price1) all relevant fields are assigned to variables for later processing. I have a yes/no message box pop up confirming the selected fields of the record.  All variables shown in the message have the correct values. What I want to do is, when the answer is yes, to insert the variables into a table. However, nothing happens when the answer is yes. The DoCmd.RunSQL  assigned does not fire off . Any help is appreciated.

if the record is being edited then it is generally better for the code to write to controls provided the values are in them.  
me.controlname = value

Open in new window


Is this a bound form?
If yes and you do want to change values in the record being edited using SQL, be sure to first save the record
if me.dirty = true then me.dirty = false

Open in new window

Is there a reason you are using DoCmd.TunSql instead of CurrentDb.Execute? What is an SQL statement that is not executing?

why do you have so many prices in one record? Perhaps the data structure could use some help too?

The subform is bound to a table1  to show the data. When clicked, the record data will be inserted into table2. 1 record is for 1 item & 1 Item has different prices like wholesale, retail &  bulk.

So far I got:

Click_Event

Dim LResponse As Integer
Dim CustID as String
Dim sqls As String

LResponse = MsgBox("You selected" & vbCrLf & ItemCode & vbCrLf & "$" & ItemPrice & vbCrLf _
& "for W/O:" & " " & TempVars!CurrentWO_ID.Value & vbCrLf & "Please confirm!", vbYesNo, "Adding Item To Quotation")


If LResponse = vbYes Then
CustID = left(TempVars!CurrentWO_ID.Value,8)
sqls = "insert into Quotation (CustomerID, Item_Code, Item_Price) values('" & CustID & "', '" & ItemCode & "', '" & ItemPrice & "');"
DoCmd.RunSQL sqls

End If

thao-nhi,

When you write your SQL statement, you must wrap text strings with single or double quotes, but numeric values should not have those.  It appears that your SQL string contains several of these characters which it should not.  Assuming that CustomerID and Item_Price are numeric values and that Item_Code is a string, the SQL would look like:

sqls = "insert into Quotation (CustomerID, Item_Code, Item_Price) " _
        & "values(" & CustID & ", '" & ItemCode & "', " & ItemPrice & ");"
