Hello evrey one

When i add or Change buttons .icon or images in my databas i see below erorr after it :
*The expression may not result in the name of a macro, the name of a user-defined function, or [Event Procedure]
*There may have been an error evaluating the function, event, or macro*
Note : this erorr disappeared after compile and restart the database every time , and No macro in my database

This kind of error has to occur in the context of a form since OnClick is almost exclusively in form context and related to some control on a form.

When I research this, it suggests a class of errors that relate to any of several events, not just "On Click". In all cases, it seems to be related to what has been entered for the failing event property. That is, it relates to giving Access something for the OnClick property that isn't one of the standard options for event activation.

Can you open up the form and take a screenshot to show the Event property list for any control on that form that has something for the On Click event (actually has something in it)? I'm not interested in the controls that don't have an On Click event action listed. If you have a lot of OnClick event links then pick the events for the most recently changed command button.

It COULD be a broken reference, but there has to be more to it than that.

And just a note on etiquette - you don't need bold letters for your entire descriptive text. It is like you are yelling at us when you do that. We can easily forgive you, but please don't make a habit of it. It is a bit annoying.

Thank you for your response, @The_Doc_Man. I believe I've identified a few key points :

1. i suspect that the issue may be related to the image type used for buttons, and i have noticed that : changing the icon to image type ( ico or bmp ) format resolved the problem after testing it multiple times.

2. i not using "Option Compare Database" but have now fixed it, and there are currently no errors for now .

3. i have also many OnClick events without error handling, i plan to implement error handling for them.

I'm glad you have resolved the problem by switching to a proper image type. What you displayed in #4 (the code) wasn't what I had requested, but if you have a workable answer, then we can leave it as-is and not worry about it.
