New Record SQL Linked table Error



I have spent the last three hours reading countless posts, but have found
nothing that address the issue at hand.

Trying accomplish adding a record to a linked table. See structure and code
below. At times the code works, and sometimes it gives me the following
error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Operating System: Windows XP Pro
Office Suite: Office XP Pro
Access DB: Access 2002
Basic Structure: Forms, queries, reports in database file (.mdb). Tables
in SQL Backend using SQL client.

Error: 3146 - ODBC Call Failed

conflicted with COLUMN FOREIGN KEY constraint 'tblActivity_FK00'. The
conflict occurred in database 'DatabaseSQL1', table 'tblMLS', column

your error is stating that the field MLSListNumber in the tblActivity
is using a value that is not tblMLS table because of this the contraint
will fail. To test this make sure you have a record in the tblMLS table
with the MLSLisNumber set to a value and hard code it on the line

rst.Fields("MLSListNumber").Va­lue = strMLSNum
rst.Fields("MLSListNumber").Va­lue = 1

make sure you have

Option Explicit

at the very top of your code this will make sure that your variable
references are spelt correctly as sometimes that can be the fault.

The other thing to do to debug this is

just above the

rst.Fields("MLSListNumber").Va­lue = strMLSNum



msgbox strMLSNum

to check the value before writting to the record.

hope it helps
