Updating a form if field has been removed so that I don't get a me


I have created a form.  Due to modifications to the form, I no longer need a 
field which I have included in the original form.

Before I deleted the field, I had made a back up of my database.

When I delete the field, let's call it "ProductCodeOld", whenever I open up 
the database, I get a text box saying that the "ProductCodeOld" is not in the 
form or words to that effect.

How do I remove a field from a form without this type of message appearing?

Thank you in advance.

Forest8 -

You may have code in the form that references the old field.  Even if you 
delete the field, it won't delete code that may reference the field.  You can 
go into the module for the form and search for the old fieldname.  Then you 
can comment out or delete any pieces of the code that are no longer needed.  
Another place to check is in the properties for the form, something as simple 
as a filter to the form that could have been based on the old field can cause 
problems opening the form.

MS can't even get the release date right
Microsoft CRM has been a major disappointment in most every aspect. Now, they've failed again with the CRM product by delaying the CRM 2005 release until 4th Quarter. Some might say that this is a good thing so that it's a better product, but MS should have it more together than to announce a ship date they can't fulfill. Very frustrating that we have to continue on with this inferior version 1 product even longer. -- Brandon Smith IT Director Presentations Direct - Specialized Office Equipment & Supplies http://www.presentationsdirect.com So what causes you to ca...

Update question
Soory if this is the wrong place to ask this, but cannot find a NG proper to Windows 7. I currently run Windows Vista and am getting tired of Vista's decision to tell me that it is going to shut down in less than a minute. So have decided to upgrade to Windows &. I note that I can purchase an upgrade versiom for 64 quid from Amazon or an apparently full version of Windows 7 Home premium for 89 quid. My question is this - If I buy the upgrade version will I only be able to load it on a new PC in the future if I already have windows Vista installed? i.e For any future cl...

Can't get pull down menus in Word, MS Office 2001 for Mac
I've been using my MS Office 2001 Word software on my Mac OS 9 for 2 years with no problems. All of a sudden I can't pull down the menus in my documents.

how to remove shading of shapes in Excel 2007 (with an .xls workbo
