Hi. Welcome to AWF!

What is error 2046? Just a guess but maybe try this?

I believe that the ApplyFilter method takes the name of a query or named filter, not a sql statement?
I suppose you could use the sql statement as a filter property (as in Me.Filter = task)? Might just as well make the form's recordsource equal to the sql statement though.

nzar: please post code within code tags (</> on toolbar) and provide the error message, not just the number. There are about 3,000 error numbers, and if you want help, you shouldn't be making us look up the number you provide. At least that's my perspective.

Error 2046 is "The command or action '....' isn't available now" and it tells you (inside the single-quoted string) what command or action wasn't available. We would need to know the exact text of the error to include that quoted material.
