    I have a macro that throws a strange (to me) error message when it runs:
    "The expression you entered has a function name that Microsoft Access can't

    The offending lines are attached to form buttons - OK and Cancel, and there
    is a close macro that Not[IsLoaded] uses to close a form. When I look at the
    Macro Group, there are small yellow triangles with exclaimation points in
    them at the start of the line.

    Here's the thing - I used the standard selection for Close and SetValue;
    everything about these macro lines is standard Microsoft. I tried changing
    the Macro Names to something different from the Action, to no avail.

    Can anyone tell me what's happening, and , more important, how to fix the
    problem, whatever it is?

    Thanks in advance! Bob

  2. Vic,

    The yellow triangles indicate actions that will not work unless the database
    is in a Trusted Location.

    Can you please give us the full details (Actions and relevant Arguments) of
    the macro that is producing the error?

    What does "Not[IsLoaded] uses to close a form" mean?
