    Error running A Browne's audit trail - Audit working in another table in the database

    I've used Allen Browne's audit code on several databases, and even on another form in the database I'm working on. The audit on that form works perfectly.

    On a new form, I've inserted all the code in the OnDelete, AfterDelConfirm, BeforeUpdate and AfterUpdate events. When I test it using the form, I get a ByRef argument type mismatch in the BeforeUpdate event, highighting the bWasNewRecord item. As you see, I have other code to record the user name and edit date as well. I tried importing the entire database into a fresh one, but the error still appeared. I compared my new audit table with the one that is working and saw that the working table had the audID autonumber primary key at the bottom of the field list, so I moved that field in the new table. Still a ByRef aurgument mismatch. I'm not sure what to do next. Sure would appreciate some guidance.

    Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
    'Enters a user name in the EditedBy field
    Me.[txtEditedBy] = CurrentUser()
    'Inserts a timestamp for last edit whenever the record is modified
    Me.[dtEditedDate] = Now()

    bWasNewRecord = Me.NewRecord
    Call AuditEditBegin("tbl_SFTP_Partners", "tbl_AudTemp_SFTP_Partners", "PartnerID", Nz(Me.PartnerID, 0), bWasNewRecord)



    End Sub

    usually this means there may be a missing reference.
    go to a module and select tools, references and check if any of them say missing..
    the only other thing you can do is to post the form with some data so we can debug the form.

    It sounds to me like you missed step 1 at "Enter the Form Events" (See bottom of page at http://allenbrowne.com/AppAudit.html)

    The top of the form code page should have:
    Code:
    Option Compare Database  'you should always have these two lines at the top of every code page
    Option Explicit
    Dim bWasNewRecord As Boolean  '<<must be here
    
    
    Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
      'Enters a user name in the EditedBy field
      Me.[txtEditedBy] = CurrentUser()
    
      'Inserts a timestamp for last edit whenever the record is modified
      Me.[dtEditedDate] = Now()
    
      bWasNewRecord = Me.NewRecord
      Call AuditEditBegin("tbl_SFTP_Partners", "tbl_AudTemp_SFTP_Partners", "PartnerID", Nz(Me.PartnerID, 0), bWasNewRecord)
    
    End Sub 
    
    'other code
    Do you have the line in RED??
