hello all.
this is my very first post o a forum, so please don't mind my lack of knowledge or my spelling mistakes.
i'm also a newbie in access development trying to wrap my head around vba.
i got stuck on this Run-time Error 5 "Invalid Procedure Call or Argument" for weeks.

i have a main form on which i have an object called box1 and some command buttons that changes the .sourceobject of box1 to some other additional forms, applying filters to them in most cases. the other two forms use a custom funtion called fLiveSearch to filter results in a listbox control and they both work well independently. but when i try to apply a filtre via vba from the main form, frmPersonal generates the above error.
debug mode highlights line 56 in the frmPersonal code, apparently doesn't like the me. reference in me.filteron, me.filter, me.txtSearch.value and so on... saying that the object is closed or does not exist. i've tryed to replace me. with form_frmPersonal and forms!frmPersonal, but i get some other errors. i'm guessing that the form set as sourceobject to the box1 control its not loaded therefore it cannot find the expression me.txtSearch.Value generating the invalid argument error. the error occurs only when i try to apply the filter via vba from the main form.

any idea on how i could get over it?
works on this form
Private Sub btnCursuriCatb_Click()
Me.Box1.SourceObject = "frmcursuri"
Me.Box1.Form.Filter = "tblCatCurs_ID=2"
Me.Box1.Form.FilterOn = True
Me.Box1.SetFocus
Me.Box1.Form.Requery
End Sub


doesn't on this one
Private Sub btnPersRES_Click()
Me.Box1.SourceObject = "frmPersonal"
Me.Box1.Form.Filter = "tblSubunitate_ID=1"
Me.Box1.Form.FilterOn = True
Me.Box1.SetFocus

Saying that you get an error on line 56 does us no good because you show no line numbers in your presentation. What IS line 56? What is on that line?

The error can be one of two things. Either your one of your arguments is the wrong "flavor" - ByRef vs. ByVal - OR one of your arguments is unexpectedly null or zero. A zero-length-string is unlikely to cause this particular error so I don't include it in the probable list of culprits. (A ZLS would cause other errors but not error 5.)

When we can figure out which line is causing the error and what it is trying to do, more help might be forthcoming.

Here is something to consider. A reference to Me. usually only works inside the form or report class module, not inside something contained in a module external to the form or report. If you want to reference a form/report in that way, you have to pass a reference to the form (via ByRef passage) and reference the form that way. Your explicit class module would fall into the category of "external to the actual form" that I mentioned.

Sorry about that.
The error occurs in the form frmPersonal vba under Private Sub txtSearch_Change() and highlights If Me.FilterOn = True Then but only when it's run from accordion_mainmenu form Private Sub btnPersRes_Click().
same code in mainmenu works with .sourceobject = "frmCursuri"

Upload your db with enough to show the problem and explicit instructions on how to recreate the issue.

If you can put a breakpoint on the offending line, you will stop execution before that line. I.e. the offending line, if properly breakpointed, is the next line to be executed. At that time you can hover the mouse over Me.FilterOn to see what its value is. If it is anything other than TRUE or FALSE (or -1 or 0), you have a reference problem.
