Run-time error '2448'

Hello,

I have a multiple criteria fields to filter records. I used the concept used
by Allen Brown example. But when I select multiple fields to filter, it gave
me this error.
Thanks for any help in resolving the problem.

Run-time error '2448':
You can't assign a value to this object.

Here is my VBA code.

Private Sub cmdFilter_Click()

Dim strWhere As String
Dim lngLen As Long


If Not IsNull(Me.cboAP) Then
strWhere = strWhere & "([AP] = " & Me.cboAP & ") AND "
End If

If Not IsNull(Me.cboProdCode) Then
strWhere = strWhere & "([ProductCode] = " & Me.cboProdCode & ") AND "
End If

If Not IsNull(Me.cboWC) Then
strWhere = strWhere & "([WC] = " & Me.cboWC & ") AND "
End If

If Not IsNull(Me.cboWCDesc) Then
strWhere = strWhere & "([WCDesc] = " & Me.cboWCDesc & ") AND "
End If

If Not IsNull(Me.txtParentPart) Then
strWhere = strWhere & "([ParentPart] Like ""*" & Me.txtParentPart &
"*"") AND "
End If

lngLen = Len(strWhere) - 5
If lngLen <= 0 Then
MsgBox "No criteria", vbInformation, "Nothing to do."
Else
strWhere = Left$(strWhere, lngLen)

Me.Filter = strWhere
Me.FilterOn = True
End If

End Sub

Private Sub cmdReset_Click()
Dim ctl As Control

For Each ctl In Me.Section(acHeader).Controls
Select Case ctl.ControlType
Case acTextBox, acComboBox
ctl.Value = Null
End Select
Next

Me.FilterOn = False
End Sub

It sounds like you have a text box with an expression in
it's control source.

If that's true, you should use a more refined text for the
controls to clear. A common way is to set those control's
Tag property to something like "SEARCH"

For Each ctl In Me.Section(acHeader).Controls
If ctl.Tag = "SEARCH" Then
ctl.Value = Null

Marshall,

I don't know what is wrong with my code, I tried your and it is giving error.
Now it give me this error.

Since ProductCode is obviously a text field, you need quotes around the
value:

([ProductCode] = '60DR')

That means you need to change your code to

If Not IsNull(Me.cboProdCode) Then
strWhere = strWhere & "([ProductCode] = '" & Me.cboProdCode & "') And "
End If

Exagerated for clarity, that's

strWhere = strWhere & "([ProductCode] = ' " & Me.cboProdCode & " ') And "

You'll need to do this for all of the text fields.

Note that your code has three double quotes after the And: that's an error.

Thanks Douglas,

I fixed the code for the text fields and it worked like a charm for all my
unbound combo fields. But I am still having problem with the unbound text box
fields.

If Not IsNull(Me.txtParentPart) Then
strWhere = strWhere & "([ParentPart] 'Like ""*" & Me.txtParentPart &
"*""') AND "
End If

When I enter 60DR* instead of returning all the records that start with
60DR....., it gave me this error.

Run-time error '3075'
Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression '([ParentPart] 'Like
"*60DR**"')'.

What do I need to change my code to make this field a search function?

Your single quotes are incorrect.

strWhere = strWhere & "([ParentPart] Like ""*" & Me.txtParentPart & "*"")
AND "

should work (that's two double quotes in front of the first asterisk two
double quotes after the second one).
