    Unhappy Unanswered: "This expression is typed incorrectly..." 3071 error

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie to using Access and have run up against this error I'm not sure how to resolve.

    I need to setup a database to handle 'recipes' which have a varying numbers of ingredients.

    I've set up one table to handle the [Recipes] including name, date invented etc. and another table I've called [Recipe Detail] to handle the individual ingredients and their relative proportions.

    The tables seem to work OK but when I try to set a data entry form up with a subform to enter the ingredient details I get an error:

    "This expression has been typed incorrectly, or is too complex to evaluate..."

    I'm not sure how to interpret this as I haven't knowingly written any expressions.

    Could someone please tell me what information I need to provide to be able to trace the source of this issue...

    Any pointers would be very gratefully welcomed

    regards

    David Tilbrook

    Possibly post a line of code which errors out.

    Can you provide details of the forms / expression that's causing you problems.

    Seem to have resolved the issue. I discovered that in one table I had the data type set to 'Text' and the other set to 'Long Integer'.

    Thanks for your help anyway.

    Resolved...

    I had a mismatch in data types on two fields used to link the Main table with the 'details' table.

    The error message confused me because I didn't think I was creating an 'expression'.

    Still live and learn
    Thanks for your help
