#Type! error in form control

Does anyone know what the #Type! error is referencing? I haven't found much on the forum about this error.

I'm trying to use an expression in a text box, but it's putting the error "#Type!" in the text box. Both parts of the expression are in the form's data source (which is a query).

The expression in the text box is:
=[PROJECT_NAME] & " (" & [DATE_START] & ")"

The same error is produced even with this expression:

How to calculate a percentage on form
I am attempting to calculate a percentage on an Access form with the expression builder using the information from the following query results. Please see below. What I need to do is determine the error capture rate for each error type. For example, for Coding (highlighted in yellow) the formula would be (35) / (35+6) = 85.36% Anotherwards, (Error Type "Items Failed") / (Error Type "Items Failed" + Error Type "Fin Err

Requery of sub-report returns #Type error on calculated control (Access 2010)
I have a main form with a sub-report (rptAccount) that contains two further sub-reports (rptPayments, rptBalance). On the rptAccount I have a calculated field txtTotal: =[rptPayments].[Report]![txtSumTotal]-[rptBalance].[Report]![txtSumTotal].

This field calculates just fine at first. But in my main form I need to trigger a requery of the sub-report afterrecords are changed.

The requery runs, and the altered records show up correctly in the two sub-sub-reports. However, the calculated field txtTotal in the first sub-report (rptAccount) now returns a #Type error. No matter what I requery, this is always the result.

I requery all of the sub-reports individually, even the txtTotal control itself in any imaginable order. I always get the #Type error.

Errors: 2950 AND 2109
I have created a macro to go to a control on a form on click of a button. The control is definitely on the form, visible and enabled and referring to a field within the table but I sometimes get an error.

The error number comes up 2950 which generates a run time error 2109 stating no field named in current record.

As the field is in the table that the form is bound to I have no idea what the problem is and it only comes up with the error occasionally. How can I prevent the error from ever coming up?

How to trap and change the default data type validation error?
I've been teaching myself Access programming and am new to this forum. I have looked here and elsewhere for a problem but have not found a solution, hoping someone here can help.

In a form control, I am doing a number of data checks and generating appropriate error messages, using VB in the "on exit" event. The field I am checking is declared as data type number in the underlying table. If the user mistakenly enters text, Access generates an error "The value you entered isn't valid for this field." I want to change that default error message. I have learned how to change other default error messages, but I can't figure out how to trap and change this one. Note -- I don't want to check for the error in the form, because there are a dozen or so controls in the form where I need to do this check

label error
Why is there an error when you put a label on a form without associating it with a control?

I don't think the error does anything other than just annoy me with a little green arrow in the corner of the label, but is there a reason I should associate a label with a control? Can you have more than one label associated with a control?

Forwarding error message
I have this database that will be used at a site away from my location and it would be very helpful to me to know if someone who is using it has run into an error.

What I want to do is to have the db send myself an e-mail with the error message and the form and control that was being used when the error happened.

I already have the e-mail code working, but.How can I find out what the error is? how can I find out what form is open? and How can I find out what control caused the problem?

I suspect the these are simple lines of code but I do not know where to look at?

Pass Values from one Subform ontrol to Another Bound Control on the Same Form
I am trying to pass the value for the second column of a combobox in a subform to another control (on the same subform) which has a control source from the underlying query. I have: me!testcontrol = me![subform].Form![control].Column(1) in the afterupdate event of a control.

It work as I would expect it to when I open the subform all by itself. The second control gets the value and it is passed to the query.

However, when I run the the form/subform I get an error saying that it can't find the subform.

Me.equipno = Forms![Call Entry]![Equipment Record].Form![serialno] End If

I have looked over and over and cannot see what the error is.
All the names are correct, I am puzzled!

Problem with ActiveX Control on Form (Access 2007)
I have a 10-year old application, which has been upgraded over the years, and is currently running in Access 2007. It is installed on 5 PCs in the same company.

All of a sudden, when the users open a particular form, they get one error message or another, but both error messages end with the text "There was an error loading an ActiveX control on one of your forms or reports".

On one of the PCs, a Compact and Repair seemed to help, but not on any of the others. I'm thinking an OS patch may have messed something up, or a software install that I'm unaware of.

The form in question uses 2 ActiveX controls, a ListView and a DatePicker control. Each of these require their own OCX to be loaded and registered.

#Error in form control until user input
I have a control on a form defined with the following formula:


It takes the user enters a date into the [Date] field and this field calculates the due date for a project. The control works fine, however, when you go to add a new record, the controldisplays #Error until the user enters a date.

This is just cosmetic, but how can I make this control just be blank until the user enters the date?

SetFocus to a Form control when cursor is in Split Form datasheet
I have a Main form with a Split Form view.

I have an OnCurrent event that runs when the user selects a different record in the Split Form.

The first part of the OnCurrent event is as follows:

1) [Forms]![f_MainTripForm_Admin].SetFocus
2) [Forms]![f_MainTripForm_Admin]![TripStartDate].SetFocus

However, the focus is staying on the TripStartDate field in the SplitForm, and not moving to the TripStartDate field in the Main form as desired.

I need to move the focus to the TripStartDate control on the form so that I can run the remainder of the OnCurrent event which shows or hides various controls on the Main form depending on the type of record the user is viewing.

Otherwise, the focus could be on a control that I am trying to hide and I will get the "Can't hide a control that had the focus" error.

Finding all occurances of a certain type GUI control - grep for Access?
I would like to find all Forms that have a Combo Box control on them. Yesterday I came across one that had a SQL query entered directly into the control instead of referring to a DAO.QueryDef object.

Condition on report forms
I have a report, but there are some equivalents for the fields I get from my table, for example type=1 means water system and type=2 means sewer system. as you can see I have added the type field in the table, I tried =iff(type=1,"water","sewer") in the control source box, but when I open up the form it asks me the iff clause and return #Error on the field.
How should I manage this
