    Object Variable Error - - Please Help!

    I've created a form in ArcMap that allows you to fill in parcel data. I have two feature classes, To-Do Parcels (unsurveyed) and Surveyed Parcels. I want to be able to click on a To-Do parcel, fill in the form, hit save, and add that parcel feature to the Surveyed Parcels feature class. Here is what I have so far in my code. Now I am getting the Object Variable Error, and have no idea why, please help!

    Re: Object Variable Error - - Please Help!

    We don't know about ArcMap, or your code. You could post a few lines surrounding where the error occurs, along with the error text and error number. Then we might be able to help

    Re: Object Variable Error - - Please Help!

    If you want help about a distinct error, you have to at least mark the line of code where the error occurs. None of us can run your code to find that out, because everything else of the program including the data is missing.
    As David sayd: post a few lines before and after the lines which fires the error and tell exactly what the error message is saying.
