    Access 2000

    I keep getting the following error message after entering data into a form-field. First a message box pops up with the message "Invalid arguement." The field is simply a text field, with no arguements. Then if I click on Help, I get the following message, "The window name 'langref' passed to HH_GET_WIN_TYPE has not been specified." The database has worked fine for at least a year and I have never had this message pop up. I have checked the Microsoft KB, FAQ's and everywhere else I can think of, to no avail. Please help if you can.

    Re: Access 2000

    Just a guess: Maybe the Record Source of the form OR the Control Source of the field has changed. If you're getting the invalid argument error, it could be that there's a function assigned to the ControlSource of the field that's suddenly not working properly.

    You may want to investigate those possibilities. However, if nothing has changed from the time when it was working, my answer may be as invalid as the argument... <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Access 2000

    Have you tried doing a Detect and Repair on Access? That can be found on the Help menu and can cure a lot of strange behavior. I just had to run it recently when my wizards went haywire. It fixed them nicely, but it is a rather long process, since it essentially reinstalls Access, although without user intervention required beyond putting your Office CD 1 in the CD-ROM drive.
