I have a system (fe and be) on a shared drive. It works fine for 2 out of 3 people. the third person, when they try to make a change (bound form), will get a message that the form can't be found. If it was everyone, I would say it is how it was named in code but it's only one person. I don't even know where to begin.


Form names:
Navigation Subform
   frmPermitInfoUpdateParent      this has 1 control cboselectpermit

   there are 2 subforms on this form:
               has field depositAmt
                on lost focus:  ConspChrg = txtDepositAmt * 0.1    '10%
      No issues 

Only on the depositamt field does the message "can't find frmPermitInfoUpdateParent
I thought if I named it directly, that would make a difference so I put in
Forms!FhNavigation!NavigationSubform.Form.frmMeterInfoUpdate.Form.conspChrg = Forms!FhNavigation!NavigationSubform.Form.frmMeterInfoUpdate.Form.txtDepositAmt * .1

Same outcome. Works for 2 out of 3 people but the one person still gets the error message.
Any ideas will be most appreciated.

RE: question

If ConspChrg and txtDepositAmt memory variables then I would always prefix them with "Me."

CODE --> vba

Me.ConspChrg = Me.txtDepositAmt * 0.1    '10% 

BTW: you might consider more descriptive titles on your questions. "question" is assumed.
