How to minus "The OLE object is empty" message ?

I have a subform the contains an OLE field which may or may not contain

data depending on the record. When you have focus on the bound object
frame
for the OLE and it is empty then move to a different subform or main
form,
it acts as though you have double clicked and want to edit the object.
You
then receive the following message:

The OLE object is empty.
You can't edit a bound object frame if the field in the underlying
table
doesn't contain an OLE object.
Embed or link an OLE object into the bound object frame using......

I have checked the events for both the subform and the frame. there is
nothing that should cause this to happen.

Any thoughts would help!!!

P.S.
If you move to an object within the same subform you do not get the
error
message.

This is a old question asked by someone else, but encountered by me
now!

Any suggestion will be appreciated!
Thanks alot!

Hi

This may not be the best solution but in the properties of the OLE
field you could set "Tab Stop" to No so that it will only receive the
focus when it is clicked or any VBA code gives it the focus.

In the form's Current event, check to see if the control is empty, if so
then Disable the control, if not then Enable the control.
*Air Code*

If NOT (IsNull(Me.NameOfYourOLEFrameControl.Value)) Then
' Yes there is OLE Data
Me.NameOfYourOLEFrameControl.Enabled = True
Else
' No there is no OLE data
Me.NameOfYourOLEFrameControl.Enabled = False
End If
