Unable to Execute Requery Action

P: 124
I have a pop up form bound to a table. When I close the pop up form, I want to requery another form because it aggregates data related to my pop up form. So, on the OnClose event of my pop up form I have:


However, when I close the form I get the following error:

Run-time error 2118: You must save the current field before you run the requery action.

I have no idea which field it is referring to. The record is saved in the table. And this doesn't happen everytime. I suppose I could absorb the error in my error handling but I would prefer to try to find out what the problem is and resolve it if possible.

Is the popup being form called from the form you're trying to requery? If so, you may need to save the current record on that form before calling the popup,
using something like

If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False

Yes, the popup is being called from the form I'm trying to requery. However, after selecting a value in my last required combobox I have the following in the combobox's AfterUpdate event:

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord

Should I replace this with the code you provided? Also, I'm not getting the error now so I'm going to have to wait until I get it again.

Either will do the job, but the error message would indicate that the popup is sometimes being called before a selection is being made from the last required combobox or after the selection is made and after data in another control is added or changed, hence making the form Dirty again.

I'd place either code immediately before the line to open the popup form.
