Recordset clone giving me errors

Recordset clone giving me errors

Recordset clone giving me errors

(OP)
Hello,

When I run the code below it errors - I have tried for sometime to see where I am going wrong - help much appreciated.

Thanks Mark

CODE -->

'Add Attachments
    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim rstAttachments As DAO.Recordset
    Dim rstRecordsToSend As DAO.Recordset
      
      Set db = CurrentDb()
      Set rstRecordsToSend = Me.RecordsetClone
      Set rstAttachments = "SELECT [InvChk_Scan_Path] FROM [rstRecordsToSend] WHERE [InvChk_Select_Invoice] = True" 

RE: Recordset clone giving me errors

You can't reference a recordset inside an SQL statement like that. The FROM must be a table or query. There are lots of tasks you can perform on recordsets such as filtering, looping through etc.

Thanks for that - I will do some further reading - much appreciated Mark

RE: Recordset clone giving me errors

There are ways to get the underlying SQL statement of a recordset, not by "RecordsetClone", but by recordset.CopyQueryDef.SQL.
That being said: since you want to use a recordset object anyway, why not set a filter?
