How does this expression evaluate?

Look at the following code please:

Form1.Data1.Recordset.FindFirst Form1.Text1.DataField & " = '" & "First Value" & "'"

The above statement works well, but I would prefer to use a variable for .Data1. and also .Text1.   but I don't know how   to get variables into that command string and have it evaluate without and error.

Thanks in advance.

Pass the controls in to a proc and go from there.
You would determine which controls to send based on you or the user's selection.

Public Sub FindFirstInstance (pDataControl as control, pFindControl as control)

   If TypeOf pDataControl Is Data Then
      If TypeOf pFindControl Is TextBox Or _
         TypeOf pFindControl Is ComboBox Then
         
         pDataControl.RecordSet.FindFirst pFindControl.DataField & "='" & "First Value" & "'"
   
      End If
   End If
   
end sub
