Using DLookup inside a user-defined function which is inside a query

Access gurus,
I am not sure if using DLookup inside a user-defined function and then
using that function inside a query is forbidden. When I did that, the
following error is encountered;

"Cannot open a form whose underlying query contains a user-defined
function that attempts to set or get the form's RecordsetClone

I never use RecordsetClone property in my code. Does anyone have any

Custom function inside SQL query (Access VBA)
I'm trying to use a custom (user-defined) function inside an SQL query. When the function is in a normal module, the code works fine, but when the function is in a Class Module, Note: I have made sure the Function is Public in the Class Module. The Routine that creates and executes the SQL command is in the Class Module.

Is it forbidden to call a function residing in a Class Module from an SQL query, or am I missing something?

OpenFunction Macro Action
In an Access project, you can use the OpenFunction action to open a user-defined function in Datasheet view, inline function Design view, SQL Text Editor view (for a scalar or table user-defined function), or Print Preview. This action runs the user-defined function when opened in Datasheet view. You can also select the data entry mode for the user-defined function and restrict the records that the user-defined function displays.

Cannot retrieve data via Excel if query got user-defined function
I would like to retrieve data from Access using Excel VBA through ADO. This was successfully done in the past until a user-defined function was added to one of the fields in the Access query. On Access, the query can run successfully. On Excel, an error "Microsoft Access Database Engine -> Undefined function in expression" is returned.

Has someone encountered similar problem before? Any workaround? I think using user-defined function in queries should be quite common because it is so useful.

SQL inside DLookup()
Forgive me but I thought this would be something simple. I am trying to execute a piece of SQL inside a DLookup(). Is that possible? I keep getting a run-time error when I try to execute.

mySQL = "SELECT * FROM tblSKUMin_Max WHERE [SKU] = '" & vSKU & "';"
vMin = DLookup("SKUMin", mySQL, "[SKUClass] = '" & vStoreClass & "'")
vMax = DLookup("SKUMax", mySQL, "[SKUClass] = '" & vStoreClass & "'")
Form_SfrmEmail.txtMedMin.Value = vMin
Form_SfrmEmail.txtMedMax.Value = vMax

Error States:
"The Microsoft Acces database engine cannot find the input table or query 'SELECT * FROM tblSKUMin_Max WHERE [SKU] = '(SKU NUMBER)';'. Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly."

Group and Count on Same Report
I have a query which joins to tables that is being used to generate a report. The query is returning the following fields:

Route #
Meter Type
Size Description

It is Grouping on Route and giving me a count of meters by size for each route.

I now have a need to add a Location field to the query. I need to Count the number of meters by route that have "INSIDE" in the text field and still be able to count based on meter size.

I know I need to add the Location field to the query but what other changes do I need to make to the report in order to sum the meter count by route correctly.


Route 10 has 50 meters total.
10 are 1" that are not inside
20 are 1" that are inside
10 are 2" that are not inside

Email contents of Form as txt INSIDE email ?
I would like to accomplish the following using Access commands or through VBA:

* When a new record is added via a form, the user would click on a command button and the contents of the form for the new record would be emailed to a predetermined listing of recipientswith the data from the form being included inside the body of the email as TXT and not as an attachment.
* The data that is being sent should be only for the new record and not the records for the entire table.

I can send the form contents as several different types of attachments using the SendObject command inside a macro but have not found a way to simply paste the data inside an Outlook emailrather than using an attachment.

Basically, I would like the same results as if the user had submitted the data in an HTML document with the MAILTO command and enclosure type as plain text.

I am zipping and attaching a sample db in case it helps. It has one table, I am hoping to replace the attachment with text directly in the email for the newly added record.

Nest a query inside another query or in an expression by using a subquery
Sometimes you may want to use the results of a query as a field in another query, or as a criterion for a query field. For example, suppose that you want to see the interval between orders for each of your products. To create a query that shows this interval, you need to compare each order date to other order dates for that product. Comparing these order dates also requires a query. You can nest this query inside of your main query by using a subquery (subquery: An SQL SELECT statement that is inside another select or action query.).
You can write a subquery in an expression (expression: Any combination of mathematical or logical operators, constants, functions, and names of fields, controls, and properties that evaluates to a single value. Expressions can perform calculations, manipulate characters, or test data.) or in a Structured Query Language (SQL) statement in SQL view (SQL view: A window that displays the SQL statement for the current query or that is used to create an SQL-specific query (union, pass-through, or data definition). When you create a query in Design view, Access constructs the SQL equivalent in SQL view.).

Passing recordsets to user defined functions
If I pass a recordset to a user defined function, will the recordset being passed point to the same record by default? so If I'm on record 10, when I pass the recordset will the passed recordset be pointing to record 10?

Second question: If I pass a recordset to a user defined function. how do I initialize it in the function

Paging a Recordset
Is it possible to query a table to show the first say 20 rows and then show the next 20 rows and so on.

My reason for asking is that I can create a paged recordset in ASP and query it to return a next / previous page of results, but I am currently using VBScript in an .hta wrapper. This wayI cannot simply link to new pages and so I need to find a way to use the Access engine to do the work in returning the records I need in a paged way.

If I can get a query that runs inside Access to do this then I can replicate it in VBScript code to run inside the .hta
