I have a database consisting of an Access 2003 front end with a SQL 2008 back end (actually our ERP database), used to print factory production orders. The database form allows users to print single orders or a range of orders based on a planner code, a simple numerical range, or a combination of these.
Recently, I have modified the reports to print a bar code to allow orders to be received using a scanner tool. Per user requests, I am modifying the orders again to allow the bar code to appear in an alternate location for orders with a certain commodity or flow code which should not be received immediately. To accomplish this, I decided to print the bar code field twice, and use conditional formatting on both fields. Here's the criterion expression I'm using for the conditional formatting:
Expression is [COMCDE_01] like "*Z*"
In the primary location, the conditional formatting is set so that the font color changes from black to white when this expression is triggered. In the alternate location, I use the same expression, but have the colors reversed.
When I use this for the report with single orders, it works correctly. However, when I use this formatting in other reports with the other selection criteria mentioned in the beginning, I get a "Run-time error 13 - type mismatch." When I look at the vb debugger, the error indicates a problem with a image control used on the reports (I will upload a Word document with screenshots). In the past, has indicated an order for a part that is missing a bitmap drawing, but none of the parts in my range of test orders is missing a drawing. I wonder what could be causing this.
I also have PDF samples of what the two bar code variations should look like if anyone thinks it might help.
Thanks in advance,
