ADO recordsource syntax

Attempting to do a SQL query to an Access DB using the ADO control
getting a type mismatch.

Private Sub cmdSearch_Click()
frmCMS.Adodc1.RecordSource = _
    "select * from tblTable where IDNum = '" & txtIDSrch.Text
frmCMS.Adodc1.Refresh
End Sub
where txtIDSrch is a TextBox

If I enter 1014 in the texbox
get the error

Syntax error in query expression 'IDNum='1014'  

I'm sure that this is a simple thing on my part, but Im kind of new at this string within a string thing

Try this if IDNum is a string field
frmCMS.Adodc1.RecordSource = _
"select * from tblTable where IDNum = '" & txtIDSrch.Text & "'"


Try this if IDNum is an integer field
frmCMS.Adodc1.RecordSource = _
"select * from tblTable where IDNum = " & txtIDSrch.Text
