Setting a Variable to a Field in Table on OnChange property

Setting a Variable to a Field in Table on OnChange property

Setting a Variable to a Field in Table on OnChange property

(OP)
I have a Form in which I want the OnChange property to run some VB code which sets a variable to a value from a Table

Thus I have something like

Dim variablehere as integer

set variablehere = DoCmd.RunSql "Select Field1 from Table1;"

The second bit doesn't work - can someone tell me the code that will set variablehere to Field1 (Note - there will only over be one record in Table1

Thanks for any help

RE: Setting a Variable to a Field in Table on OnChange property

Try this in your code.

Dim variablehere as integer
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
Set db = CurrentDb()
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("Table1")
With rs
    variablehere = !Field1
End With

Set db = Nothing
