Simply drop that and it should work (the default is .Value) OR Try putting in the SetFocus method as advised by Access, i.e. Private Sub Command5_Click() Dim cardno As Integer cardnumber.SetFocus <-------Use this line to set the focus cardno = cardnumber.Text DoCmd.OpenForm "search_card_number", acNormal, , WHERE & cardno = [Account Number] End Sub share|improve this answer answered Dec 20 '13 at 12:35 agnes 1,20441435 I get a runtime error 6, overflow. but the carnumber.text did get the value I was enter in textbox –Steve Dec 20 '13 at 12:42 I guess data can no longer be held by an integer. Try changing the line Dim cardno As Integer to Dim cardno As Long should fix the immediate problem. –agnes Dec 20 '13 at 12:49 I get a 2465 runtime error, and is highlighted the Docmd section in yellow. –Steve Dec 20 '13 at 12:55 add a comment| Did you find this question interesting?

Oct 7 '08 #1 Post Reply Share this Question 5 Replies Expert 2.5K+ P: 3,532 missinglinq In Access VBA the Text property is only available when the control has focus, as you've seen .The Text run time error property is seldom used in VBA. Use the .Value Property instead. It doesn't require focus to work. And since it's the Default Property for a textbox/combobox, you don't actually have to include it! txtEmail is the same as txtEmail.Value Linq ;0)> Oct 7 '08 #2 reply P: 77 Sep410 Thank you.It is working now.

Linq ;0)> Oct 7 '08 #4 reply P: 9 sirdevo I had a couple of textboxes I needed to change the .text property on, but when I would setfocus to update the textbox it would cause problems by activating all my events I had placed on those textboxes. It allows me to change the values without causing events to trigger. Sir Devo Nov 12 '09 #5 reply Expert 2.5K+ P: 3,532 missinglinq As I said previously, there is seldom any reason to use the Text Property in Access VBA, and it certainly shouldn't be used to set value of a textbox! If you need to change the value of a textbox thru code, use the Value Property, which doesn't require setting the focus to the textbox. Me.TextboxName.Value = "Whatever" Since the Value Property is the default property f

masks for dates on forms. I usually add code to force the cursor to the beginning of the text box using SelStart. Private Sub txtDate1_GotFocus() Me.txtDate1.SelStart = 0 End Sub I created a form and the above field functioned fine. After I added more controls and code I began to get a Run-time 2185 error -You can't reference a property or method for a control unless the control has the focus. Anyone know what causes this or is my form corrupted in some way? Thanks in advance for any help or insight, -- Scott S Guest, Nov 8, 2007 #1 Advertisements Allen Browne Guest Scott, the only case that comes to mind is where: - You have a form that contains no records, and - No new records can be added. In this case, the detail section goes completely blank. Any controls in the Form Header or Form Footer sections still show, but Access gets confused and can show this error message.

So Access is saying that you're trying to do something to ControlA that you can only do when ControlA has focus, and ControlA doesn't have focus! One possibilty that comes to mind, especially when you speak of adding multiple controls and using the identical code on all of them, is that you've copied and pasted code and forgotten to change the control name in the code. Say you start with Private Sub txtDate1_GotFocus() Me.txtDate1.SelStart = 0 End Sub then you add a new field, txtDate2. You copy and paste the above sub, and change txtDate1 to txtDate2 in the sub title, but forget to do so in the body of the sub, so that you end up with this Private Sub txtDate2_GotFocus() Me.txtDate1.SelStart = 0 End Sub Now, w
