Method Or Dta Member Not Found

P: 98
Can anyone help me with an error message i am receiving? I am trying with the code below to add a field to an existing table. My code doesn't even perform the debug. It jumps to the "fld.close" line and displays a compile error "method or data member not found". I thought maybe my table name variable was incorrect, but it won't even perform the debug. thanks for any help!

Private Sub lstTableList_AfterUpdate()
Dim db As dao.Database
Dim tbl As dao.TableDef
Dim fld As dao.Field
Dim tblClientTable As String

tblClientTable = Forms!frmDailyClient!lstTableList & "_" & MyValue
Debug.Print tblClientTable
mAnswer = MsgBox("Add a field called LS Data?", vbYesNo)
If mAnswer = 6 Then

' Start by opening the database
Set db = CurrentDb()
' Create a tabledef object
Set tbl = db.TableDefs(tblClientTable)

' Create field; set its properties; add it to the tabledef
Set fld = tbl.CreateField("LSRate", dbDouble)
tbl.Fields.Append fld

End If

Me!lstFieldList.Visible = True
Me!lstTableList.Visible = False

Set fld = Nothing
Set tbl = Nothing
Set db = Nothing

End Sub

Which line does it fall over on

Did u know u are closing fld when u havent even set it

U set fld inside a IF statement, but close it outside. That can cause a problem
Same applies to tbl

When you start to run any code, the parser will run a preliminary check through your code without compiling it.
It's checking for the obvious errors.
If it finds one it won't even start to execute the code but it will select the first line at fault and display a relevant error message.
pks00 has already drwawn your attention to certain things you need to change in your code which might explain why the parser wouldn't continue.

It seems that fld doesn't suport the close property

And I think that you need to close your table and your database and not your field and your table!

So the first step remove this line

The second one db.close to close the opened instance of the database!
