Object variable or With block variable not set



I am fetching data from ORDR (Sales Order) in a matrix where SO Status is Open & Users have to input their remarks why it is still pending.


I am getting error "Object variable or With block variable not set" on my Private Sub PopulateMatrix()

The Code :

Private Sub PopulateMatrix()



oMatrix = oForm.Items.Item("matx").Specific

oedit1 = oForm.Items.Item("6").Specific

oedit2 = oForm.Items.Item("8").Specific

Dim fromdate As String = oedit1.Value

Dim todate As String = oedit2.Value

oDS = oForm.DataSources.DBDataSources.Add("ordr")

strSQL = "Select DocNum, DocDate ,DocDueDate, CardName, DocTotal From ORDR where DocStatus ='O' "

oApplication.Utilities.ExecuteSQL(RS, strSQL)


For i = 1 To RS.RecordCount

oDS.SetValue("Col_Draft", i - 1, RS.Fields.Item("docnum").Value)

oDS.SetValue("Col_BPName", i - 1, RS.Fields.Item("CardName").Value)

oDS.SetValue("Col_DocDt", i - 1, RS.Fields.Item("DocDate").Value)

oDS.SetValue("Col_DueDt", i - 1, RS.Fields.Item("docDuedate").Value)

oDS.SetValue("Col_Total", i - 1, RS.Fields.Item("DocTotal").Value)

If i < RS.RecordCount Then

oDS.InsertRecord(i - 1)

End If



If RS.RecordCount = 0 Then

oApplication.Utilities.Message("No Records Found", SAPbouiCOM.BoStatusBarMessageType.smt_Error)

Exit Try

End If



Catch ex As Exception

oApplication.Utilities.Message(ex.Message, SAPbouiCOM.BoStatusBarMessageType.smt_Error)



RS = Nothing

oDS = Nothing

strSQL = ""

End Try

End Sub

Thank you all in advance

    Hi John,

    This error means that you are trying to access any object that was not initialized.

    What seems from your code snippet is that you are trying to populate User Defined Form's matrix with the data from Sales Order (Open SOs).


    oDS = oForm.DataSources.DBDataSources.Add("ordr") seems to be incorrect ;

    firstly here if oForm is the user defined form then you are trying to add ORDR as datasource table which is not possible.

    Instead you should have used the following line

    oDS = oForm.DataSources.DBDataSources.item("@UDT")

    Where @UDT is the name of user defined table to which the matrix will be bound.Also note that if this datasource is already added to the form , you should use item collection.

    So the right way is to add a dbdatasource referring to a user defined table and bound the matrix columns with the same database columns.

    Otherwise use UserDefined DataSource to bind the matrix columns.

    Hopefully this oDS object is not getting initialized and is the cause of the error.

    Hi Pooja,

    Thanks for your reply, it was helpful.Though i found it was the ""oDS.SetValue("Col_Draft", i - 1, RS.Fields.Item("docnum").Value)""

    Which was giving problem, after modifying it i am getting the desired results.
