Correct you are Sir.  RaiseEvent does not work in Access97.  It does not
cause a compile or runtime error however so you can just leave it in there
and not use that functionality.

Just a small note to those on the list still using Access 97.  WithEvents
will work within Access 97, however, you cannot use RaiseEvent from within a
custom class in Access 97.  It is available in Access 2000 (and up), and in

	Father of AccessD Withevents usage, and who taught me everything I

and make

	to use.  If you don't understand them yet, take this opportunity to
	how they work.
