Switchboard Micro problem


T

TedChicago

I've started a new database. I've created a Switchboard. When I want to
open the switchboard I get a message:
"The control name 'Label1' is misspelled or refers to a control that doesn't
exist...."
When I click OK, I get a "Action Failed" box that lists a Macro Name,
Condition, Action Name and Arguments.

Assuming that you are using the Switchboard Manager tool, have you attempted
to change the Switchboard directly without using the Manager? Aside from
changing the size, graphics, and other minor things, you really can't mess
with the Switchboard much. If you have messed with it, delete both the
Switchboard form AND the Switchboard Items table. Then start over again.

I've done that already--twice in fact. Still no luck. It keeps on telling me
"Label1" is misspelled, but there is no "Label1".

I have the same proble. I look in the macros and don't see one. This error
is strange since I never created a macro.

First I get a window that says "The control name 'Label1' is misspelled or
refers to a control name that doesn't exist" ... [there is 'Label1' anywhere]

When I click OK, I get a window titled "Action Falied" with the following
entries:

Macro Name:
Switchboard : Form : OnOpen : Embedded Macro

Condition:
True

Action Name:
SetProperty

Arguments:
Label1, 9, Main Switchboard

On the right side are three buttons:
Step (grayed out)

Stop All Macros (active)

Continue (grayed out)

Error Number:
2950

Ted,

I have not used macros in years so I'm going to do the best I can... Why is
Label1 in the arguments area? You have no Label1 on the Switchboard. What
happens if you remove that?
Arguments:
Label1, 9, Main Switchboard

The issue comes from the embedded macros in the form. Change the two of them to event procedure and you should not have any issues. - Design flaw that was overlooked.
