I hope this is the right place for this, it kinda seems like a coding issue. I am getting the following error message when trying to ascertain the length of an unbound textbox :
Error 2185 : You can't reference a property or method for a control unless the control has focus.
Here is the code contained in a command button:
Private Sub cmdProcess340_Click()
Debug.Print Me.txtMBRNBRs.Text 'This gives the same error
If Len(Me!txtMBRNBRs.Text) > 0 Then
MsgBox "it is"
None of this works. I am a pretty hardcore VB person, but not too much into access forms (yuck). Any idea what I am doing wrong here or am I under a misconception about something. Thanks much,
