DataGrid control

I want to display in a data grid control only the recordsets queried from a table and I want it to clear and display the new results when I do a new query.
The control is bound to the database's table ok, displays all the current data.
this is what I  got:
adodc's(in this case is called dcVideo) command is set to adcmdtext
Dim strSQL As String
  strSQL = "select * from films1 where "
  If strvalue = 1 Then
       If Option1.Value = True Then
     strSQL = strSQL & "year=2000"
      End If
      If Option2.Value = True Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "year>1989"
      End If
      If Option3.Value = True Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "year>1979 and year<1990"
      End If
      If Option4.Value = True Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "year<1979"
      End If
  ElseIf strvalue = 2 Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "oscar_award=A"
  ElseIf strvalue = 3 Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "categories=List1.Text"
  End If
  With dcVideo
      .RecordSource = strSQL
  End With
for some reason it works fine when strvalue=1 but it doesn't work with the other two, everything goes fine until it gets to the refresh of dcvideo ("no value given for one or more parameters"), the string given to the recordsource is the right one.
Any idea please?(I'm going nuts)

Because Year is numeric and other fields are characters!

change to:

  ElseIf strvalue = 2 Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "oscar_award='A'"
  ElseIf strvalue = 3 Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "categories='" & List1.Text & "'"
  End If

I think you are right, strvalue =2 works now but strvalue =3 still doesn't, how can I change a string to a numeric value?
