VB module in access

Hi. I have a module in access that parses some info from a text file and matches a SS# to participant data in a table, then places the new info in another table. Three fields are taken from the participant table and added to the new table. The first field is fine, and the name is transferred to the new table. Then I get an error "item not found in collection" for the other two fields. I know these fields exist in rsPar, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Below is the code involved. Thanks!!

Set db = OpenDatabase(TANF)
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("Data Import", dbOpenDynaset)

TranCode = Mid$(ReadData, 1, 2)
SSN = Mid$(ReadData, 51, 9)
Amount = Mid$(ReadData, 60, 10)
Warrant = Mid$(ReadData, 70, 8)

strCriteria = "SELECT Name FROM Participant_Records WHERE Social_Security = '" & SSN & "'"

Set rsPar = db.OpenRecordset(strCriteria)


If rsPar.RecordCount < 1 Then
 rs.AddNew
 rs("Social_Security") = SSN
 rs("Amount") = Amount / 100
 rs("Tran_Code") = TranCode
 rs("Warrant") = Warrant
 rs.Update
Else

rs.AddNew
rs("Social_Security") = SSN
rs("Name") = rsPar![Name]
rs("Amount") = Amount / 100
rs("Tran_Code") = TranCode
rs("Warrant") = Warrant

'HERE IS WHERE THE ERROR MESSAGE STARTS:
  rs("Bank_Routing_Number") = rsPar![Bank_Routing_Number]
 
  rs("Bank_Account_Number") = rsPar![Bank_Account_Number]

rs.Update
End If

strCriteria should be

strCriteria = "SELECT Name, Bank_Routing_Number FROM Participant_Records WHERE Social_Security = '" & SSN & "'"

PaulHews is correct when you create the record set it's collection only contains the items that you have requested in the sql, you could just do a select * if you want every column or do as paul suggested to select particual colums.

The RecordCount property doesn't indicate how many records are contained in a dbOpenDynaset Recordset object until all records have been accessed. Once the last record has been accessed, the RecordCount property indicates the total number of undeleted records in the Recordset or TableDef object. To force the last record to be accessed, use the MoveLast method on the Recordset object.. Eg.

Set rsPar = db.OpenRecordset(strCriteria)

rsPar.MoveLast

If rsPar.RecordCount < 1 Then
