New to Access programming. Just created a form and wired events to it but every time I bring the form up on either the control or an event like Form_Load, I get a "User Defined Type Not Defined" error. I wired the control events through the property sheet and used the Code Builder option. I'm also testing the events through the interface using Form View.

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.
Can you please post the VBA code behind it so we can see it?

They are just stubs. What I did was to click on the control, and, on the property sheet under the Event tab, I clicked on the ellipse and chose Code Builder. It then created the stub. I get the error when I go into FormView. I can't even get to a breakpoint. It has to be some simple procedural thing I'm not doing.

OK. I found it. Apparently there was an undefined object because the class module was not pulled into the project from the Excel project I was working on. The confusion was that the compiler did not flag it as it normally would (or at least in a way I'm used to) until I did a compile project from the Debug menu. I also had an error on an object who's class module is included in the project named currentRecord. I figure it must be a reserve word because when I changed the name, I got a clean compile.
