ACC1x: Error When Using OpenQueryDef Method on Parameter Query


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1


When you are using the OpenQueryDef method on a parameter query, the error message "Couldn't Find Object" appears when you re-create the sample code on page 137 of the Microsoft Access "Introduction to Programming" manual.


There are three likely causes for this error message:

  • The name of the query you are trying to open is misspelled
  • The parameter is misspelled
  • The parameter is not explicitly defined

In the sample code on page 137, both the query name and the parameter are misspelled.


The following sample function is a correction to the errors in the sample on page 137 of the Microsoft Access "Introduction to Programming" manual:

   ' Declarations section of the module
   Option Explicit

   Function TestQP ()
      Dim db As Database, Q As QueryDef, DataRecs As Dynaset
      Set db = CurrentDB()
      Set Q = db.OpenQueryDef("Products by Category (Parameter)")
      Q![Enter a category id:] = "COND"    'This is an explicit parameter

      Set DataRecs = Q.CreateDynaset()
   End Function
