I am not familiar with "DoCmd.RunSQL", I will have to look it up (unless you have a few links).  Is 
DoCmd a server? 

I have not used Base with Macros in a long time, but, last time I did, I was creating connections 
to a database and then running SQL commands using a connection object. 

I have examples in AndrewBase.odt if that is of any help to you. (called Random DB Ramblins, and yes that is 
spelled incorrectly).

My assumption was 
X = "SQL string"

The SQL string runs correctly is correct when executed as SQL Command
in the Base Tools/SQL window.

The Basic Macro with the above statemsnt compiles without error when
the SQL command text is enclosed in "" quotes. But at runtime it halts
with the message that the variable X is not set. However, a Basic Print
statement shows the correct value for X.

(By the way, the Watch function displays no values for any variable.
Not sure if it should)

My conclusion is that I ma using the wrong syntax for DoCmd.RunSQL

Any ideas?
