Error check

    I have a table with a status field with values of either "OK" or
    "Incomplete". This table sits in a subform. I want to run an update process
    (macro or VBA) on the main form, but I want the process to first check if
    there are any values in the subform that are still set to "Incomplete" - if
    so, then I would like to display an error message and stop processing.

    Any ideas how to do this?

    Thanks

    I guess you can get the (filtered) Recordset of the Subform and use
    FindFirst (DAO Library required) to see if there is any row/Record in the
    Subform's Recordset that has the value "Incomplete".

    Alternatively, you can use a DCount() with criteria so that selected Records
    are the same with the Records currently on the Subform with an additional
    criterion to select only "Incomplete". If DCount() returns > 0, that means
    Record(s) with "Incomplete" exist.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
