When i am trying to export a report to an excel file i am getting this error: The object doesn't contain automation object '|.' I get to this report through a button that is located on the main menu form. How ever if i open this report from the database window under reports, then export, I will not run into any problems, it works like a dream. I have no idea where this is coming from, I do not have any tables or queries labeled like this. I was put into the middle of this database and do not see any VBA code that has a '|' in it. I may have just not found it yet. I am not sure if that is the real problem or not. Does anyone know why this would act like this? What should i be looking for? Am i close to being on the right track? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
