Default using control.caption in Access2000

I am converitng a database with quite a bit of associated code from A97 to A2000. The following fails:

Dim ctlSample As Control

Set ctlSample = CreateControl(frm.Name, acLabel, acDetail, "", _
, sngLeft, sngTop, conWidthLabel, conHeight)

'set properties of the sample label

With ctlSample
.Caption = rst!SampAbrv

Is there a new syntax for ctl.caption in 2000? I've tried help and a web search but no joy.

First question: Have these been set yet?

frm, sngLeft, sngTop, conWidthLabel, and conHeight

For example, frm has to be set to a specific form for frm.name to work. Do you mean "this form I'm on at the moment"? If so, you can use Me.Name.

Greg -
  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

open db1
Cruise Setup > Recover Database
load 7mf05_day

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.
