I checked and the variables have been initialized.
If it helps, I've put the full database, and a test dataset, at http://oregonstate.edu/~vancet/Access2000/
Database is db1, data file is 7mf05_day.
To use it
Cruise Setup > Recover Database
then run either
Cruise Setup > New Sample
Enter Data and click the "Add 'new' Sample" button
What I am trying to do it to add a new sample type and have it show up in frmNewSamples, which is seen in frmEntry.
The program runs frmEnterNewSample which updates frmNew Samples. When I run in debug more the error mentioned above shows up in modUpdatefrmSamplesCollected.
When I enter a new sample is *does* end up in subfmSampleDict so part of the process is working.
Sorry to give such a verbose answer - any thoughts gratefully received.
