    Error when trying to open form with specific record from subreport (can't find field)

    Hello all,

    As the title suggests, I am trying to open a form "frmTaskInfo" containing a specific record (primary key = "TaskID") when double-clicking on the "TaskDesc" field on a subreport "sbrptTodoList". Here is the code I am using:

    Code:
    Private Sub TaskDesc_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
    
      DoCmd.OpenForm "frmTaskInfo", _
        WhereCondition:="TaskID=" & Me.TaskID
    
    End Sub
    When I double-click on the TaskDesc field, I get the error, "Microsoft Access can't find the field 'TaskID' referred to in your expression." I had programmed this with a command button on a subform with success, however I was not able to format the continuous subforms to my liking. This same function should be possible from a subreport, no? I have included an image of my SELECT query for sbrptTodoList in case that is helpful.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Set a breakpoint so you can hover over the "Me.TaskID" to see if it has a value. We're trying to see if it can't find the field on the subreport or the form being opened. Can you attach the db here?

    Thank you for the reply. I set a breakpoint and when I hover over the statement is says that access can't find TaskID. I have attached a clean version of the database as well.dbReportError.zip

    TaskID is in the query but not on the report. Put a textbox named TaskID bound to that field in the detail section (it can be hidden). Then your code works fine.

    when double-clicking on the "TaskDesc" field on a subreport "sbrptTodoList".
    I don't see a TaskDesc on the subform/report????
    Perhaps you could tell us about the "business" this database is intended to support.

    Already solved, but it's a control name not a field name. The field is TascDescEllipsis.
