Tell us, what have you done to improve the situation? Others can learn from that.

Perhaps your problem comes from the fact that most of the text controls on your form are unbound; and some of the key fields from the structure table are not represented, not even with unbound fields. I don't see any code that moves values from these unbound controls to a recordset.

It would a very good idea for you to work through some examples given with Access; usually they're in an .mdb called Northwind, but I believe some versions have a different sample database.

I applaud your efforts, you're obviously expanding your programming boundaries, and you've come to the right place for help. But it would be a very idea to master some simpler forms and tables before tackling this one.

I'd like to point out a few critically important flaws with just one of your routines. Look at
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Combo32_AfterUpdate()
  2.     ' Find the record that matches the control.
  3.     Dim rs As Object
  5.     Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
  6.     rs.FindFirst "[Section_ID] = " & Str(Nz(Me![Combo32], 0))
  7.     If Not rs.EOF Then Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
  8. End Sub
First off, it looks like you learned the lesson about bad names; there are no combo boxes in your form with this name. So maybe you renamed the combo box and did not realize that the code for that combo box did not get renamed.

You've opened a recordset rs but you never close it. That will bite you, I know from experience. Be sure to add
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. rs.close
  2. set rs = nothing
after using a recordset.

And finally, you don't have any error trapping. You need to add that to most routines. Something like
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     On Error GoTo Err_msg
  2.     .... your routine's other code here ....
  3.     exit sub (or function)
  4. Err_msg: msgbox "Error " & err.number & " " err.description
  5.          resume next
Search for vba error handling here in the forum or with Google and study that. There's a lot of good advice about that avaialable.
