What's the value of InvoiceID when you get the error?

Where does it's value actually come from?
Dale FyeOwner, Developing Solutions LLCCommented:
Chances are you have a unique index on one of the fields in your [Invoices] table, probably the InvoiceID field.

It looks like you are trying to copy a record, if InvoiceID is a autonumber (PK) field, you will probably have to do something like:

strsql = "INSERT INTO Invoices (Field2, Field3, Field3, Field4) " _
       & "SELECT Field2, Field3, Field4 " _
       & "FROM Invoices WHERE InvoiceID = " & NZ(me!InvoiceID, 0)
