    referencing a control

    Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this?

    Run time error '2185'
    You can't reference a property or method for a control unless the control has the focus.


    Private Sub AssignButton_Click()
    Dim SQLMasterUpdate As String
    Dim oItem As Variant

    If Me!RestaurantListBox.ItemsSelected.Count <> 0 Then
    For Each oItem In Me!RestaurantListBox.ItemsSelected
    SQLMasterUpdate = "UPDATE Restaurant SET " & _


    "Restaurant.AccountManagerID = (SELECT AccountManagerID FROM AccountManager " & _
    "WHERE AccountManagerName = " & Me!AccountManagerName.Text & ") " & _
    "WHERE ((SELECT RestaurantInfo, RestaurantPhone FROM Restaurant) = " & oItem & ");"
    DoCmd.RunSQL SQLMasterUpdate
    Next oItem
    Else
    MsgBox "Nothing was selected from the list", vbInformation
    Exit Sub 'Nothing was selected
    End If
    End Sub

    Oh, I figured it out. I changed .Text to .Value.

    The subquery still doesn't work but that's a whole 'nother issue.

    For testing and debugging use a
    debug.print SQLMasterUpdate

    and comment out 'DoCmd.RunSQL SQLMasterUpdate
    while doing this test.
    You will see what the SQL looks like and can check it for errors (visually).

    I think you're missing some quotes(') that would surround a text value in the Update statement.
