Object Required error in access db sub procedure

Object Required error in access db sub procedure

I am having some difficulty with the above error "object required" being returned when running a sub procedure in an access database. Quite simply I would like the on click command  to return a message box if a particular condition is met. Here is my code:

Private Sub Command130_Click()
Dim intresponse As Integer

On Error GoTo Err_Command130_Click

If Forms![Data]![SR number] Is Null Then
MsgBox "A valid SR number has not been assigned to this record." _
& Chr(10) & "The SR number should not be 0.", vbOKOnly
Exit Sub
End If

If Forms!Data![DTPicker4] < Date + 1 Then
    intresponse = MsgBox("The 'Next Action Date' has not been set for a future date." & Chr(10) & _
    "Do you want to set a follow up date?", vbYesNo, "Next Action Date")
    If intresponse = vbYes Then
        DoCmd.GoToControl "[DTPicker4]"
        DoCmd.Close acForm, "Data"
    End If
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "Data"
End If

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command130_Click
End Sub

The problem is related to my first if statement. If I remove or comment this out it works as expected. I can't understand why the second if statement works fine but the first returns the "object required" error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Object Required error in access db sub procedure

That should be:

If IsNull(Forms![Data]![SR number]) Then

There are specific fora for Access.
