Invalid use of ., ! or () - runtime error 3075

P: 39
Hello All,

I'm in need of help here. I have build my query in a query builder in access as a select query. Query runs fine. Changed it to a make table query. Query makes table ok. Copy and pasted the SQL into my VBA on a form and bam! Run Time error 3075. I've checked and re-checked but I'm not any closer to finguring out where i'm off. If someone could help I would be so grateful! My full code is below. My error message states "Invalid use of '.', '!', or '()'. in query expression '((([SYSTEM WORKING].[ati hours]) ".... after the WHERE clause.

Looks like you forgot an AND Clause in Line #8:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  "WHERE ((([SYSTEM WORKING].[ati hours]) Is Null) ((ZONE_WORKING.event_id) Not Like 'E*' AND (ZONE_WORKING.event_id) Not Like 'FA' " & _
Should Be:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  "WHERE ((([SYSTEM WORKING].[ati hours]) Is Null) And((ZONE_WORKING.event_id) Not Like 'E*' AND (ZONE_WORKING.event_id) Not Like 'FA' " & _
