Using the Set command with a counter variable

Using the Set command with a counter variable

Using the Set command with a counter variable


I am trying to use "Set" to assign a form control but a part of the control name is a counter.
I would like to use the second line of code where "cnt" is the counter in order to get the first line.

Thanks for any help

Set Planned_Datet = Forms!frm_Review_Plan1!Planned_Date1
Set Planned_Datet = Forms!frm_Review_Plan1!Planned_Date & cnt

RE: Using the Set command with a counter variable

If I have a form with a command button named Command1, this works:


Dim c As Control
Dim i As Integer

i = 1

Set c = Me.Controls("Command" & i)

Debug.Print c.Name 

You can adjust this logic to fit your needs, which would be something like:
Set Planned_Datet = Forms!frm_Review_Plan1.Controls("Planned_Date" & cnt)

Have fun.

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

Thank you Andy! It worked.
