I am trying to cycle through the controls collection in a form and identify a control by the name property. First I narrow the filed by identifying the textboxes which is the type of control I am trying to identify. The purpose of this is to find empty controls. When I use a Select case structure it fails to stop at the appropriate case even though if I debug.print control.name it gives me the appropriate name of the control. Select Case Control.name Case txtName 'actual control name end select Does not execute. What am I missing? Thanks.
