"You entered an expression that has invalid reference to the property Form/Report"

135 New Member
I am trying to open my purchase orders form and go to the last record. In the on open command I do:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acLast
Seems straight forward enough...but I keep getting this message "You entered an expression that has invalid reference to the property Form/Report" before the form opens. After I acknowledge the message the form opens and goes to the last record. How do I X the message.

The form and thus the recordset has not been loaded during the on open event. You need to perform this task in the "On Load" event.

Thanks, that did it. What's funny is, I have no problem running the DoCmd on open in a diff database. Anyway...your advice did the trick. Thanks.

I was having the same problem when using 2 subforms in a form. Apparently if you call any form's functions before the form is loaded it will produce this error. The fix was moving the failed subform above the one calling the code.
The load order is subforms first, from top to bottom, followed by the parent form.

However, I also want to read two fields from a *single* record from a table called 'Locations' and then apply one of these field's values...
