    My form has a drop-down list with the names of various Events. When I click
    the desired Event I trigger an OnClick event that is suppose to open the
    EventForm with information contined in the record "Event" Here's my
    subroutine. The problem is "Me![EventBox]" When I click the an item in the
    EventBox, e.g. "Series2005" I get a small dialog box that says: "Enter
    Parameter Value" and it shows "Series2005" with two buttons and a place to
    type in some parameter.

    With what should I replace "Me![EventBox]"?

    Private Sub EventBox_Click()
    On Error GoTo Err_EventBtn_Click

    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "EventForm"
    stLinkCriteria = "[Events.Event]=" & Me![EventBox]
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

    Exit_EventBtn_Click:
    Exit Sub

    Err_EventBtn_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_EventBtn_Click

    End Sub

    If Event is a Textfield you need the syntactically required
    quotemarks. Try

    stLinkCriteria = "[Events].[Event]='" & Me![EventBox] & "'"

    If the event might contain an apostrophe (e.g.if there were an event
    named "Mairi's Wedding") use doublequotes; you need to double the
    doublequote within the doublequote delimited string to get a single
    doublequote:

    stLinkCriteria = "[Events.Event]=""" & Me![EventBox] & """"

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!
