Unanswered: Error when clearing form
Using access 2007
Basically i have created a form (Majority unbound) and wanted the user to be able to save the form (done) and then clear the form in order to input the new data.
I already have a clear button that clears a majority of the controls on the form using this VBA code
Private Sub Clear_form_Click()
Dim ctl As Control
On Error Resume Next
For Each ctl In Me.Controls
ctl.Value = ctl.DefaultValue
Set ctl = Nothing
This is all well except one point :
The last text box doesn't clear, instead it says #Error. The Text box is simple i just created it from the MS ribbon and entered the name of it and a simple calculation which is : =[Quantity]-[Quantity_out].
this obviously means that not all the controls are clear and new so How exactly do i over come this??
Anything else i can do please ask

Yes. You're getting an error because once you cleared the fields, it no longer sees 'any' values in your formula. Instead of 'clearing' the values for Quantity, Quantity-out, you may want to set these to 0. Either that or add some testing in your calculation formula to test for null values.Expert Database Programming
