I have this code in a module:

Sub AuditChanges(IDField As String)
    On Error GoTo AuditChanges_Err
    Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim ctl As Control
    Dim datTimeCheck As Date
    Dim strUserID As String
    Set cnn = CurrentProject.Connection
    Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
    rst.Open "SELECT * FROM tblAuditTrail", cnn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
    datTimeCheck = Now()
    strUserID = Environ("USERNAME")
    For Each ctl In Screen.ActiveForm.Controls
        If ctl.Tag = "Audit" Then
            If Nz(ctl.Value) <> Nz(ctl.OldValue) Then
                With rst
                    .AddNew
                    ![DateTime] = datTimeCheck
                    ![UserName] = Environ("USERNAME")
                    ![FormName] = Screen.ActiveForm.Name
                    ![RecordID] = Screen.ActiveForm.Controls(IDField).Value
                    ![FieldName] = ctl.ControlSource
                    ![OldValue] = ctl.OldValue
                    ![NewValue] = ctl.Value
                    .Update
                End With
            End If
        End If
    Next ctl
AuditChanges_Exit:
    On Error Resume Next
    rst.Close
    cnn.Close
    Set rst = Nothing
    Set cnn = Nothing
    Exit Sub
AuditChanges_Err:
    MsgBox Err.Description, vbCritical, "ERROR!"
    Resume AuditChanges_Exit
End Sub

Open in new window


And I have this code in the after del confirm event of a command button on a form:

If Status = acDeleteOK Then Call AuditChanges("RecordID", "DELETE")

Open in new window


But I get an error when I delete a record using the command button on the form:

"Compile Error .. Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment"

and the "Call AuditChanges" part of the after del confirm event is highlighted.

What am I doing wrong?

Your call has two arguments:

all AuditChanges("RecordID", "DELETE")

 "RecordID" and "Delete"

but the procedure is only looking for one:

AuditChanges(IDField As String)

 which is "IDField"

I guess it errors all the controls but some controls don't have ControlSource...
So you have to set
if ctl.ControlType = acTextBox

Open in new window

the above code checks only for controls that are textboxes....check what controls you have and accordingly make the checks...
