If x is declared as integer,then you can try this:

"Select * from labelshistory where [Status]= '" & PRINT & "' and [EmployeeId] = " & x

Set your SQL string like:

SQL = "Select * from labelshistory where (Status = 'PRINT') AND (EmployeeId = '" & Format$(x) & "')"

Then make your call.

It won't take the statement in the properties of the command in the data environment

Did you try mine?  I put the x value in single quotes because we have had the same problem.

Yes i tried that one two.  In the data environment window i need a way to set the command's sql statement in code instead of entering it in the window.  then the above would work.  there may also be a way to enter the parameter in the window but the parameter tab is always greyed out and i can't get it to work.

Have you tried enclosing the X value in square brackets making it a Named Parameter.  e.g. [X]

Check out "Specifying Parameter Marker Characters" in the MSDN Library

this is getting closer.  How do you pass the value of x to the data environment?  It will let me run the program without any errors now but it returns an empty recordset because x is empty.  when x changes in the program i need a way to send it to the data environment and have it refresh.
