I'm trying to update a record. but i get the following error: Data type mismatch in criteria expression. error: -2147217913
I have spent 4 hrs and i can't find the solution. I'm going crazy. Is it because i'm using an array?  the debuging points to the .open

the Course_Registration_ID field in access is my Primary Key and is autonumber.
the intCourseID , i have changed to long and it doesn't work either.

Dim intCourseID as integer

intCourseID = txtCourseID(index).Text

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Course_Registration "
         strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE Course_Registration.Course_Registration_ID = '" & _
                           intCourseID & "'"

With recCertificate
            .ActiveConnection = cnConn
            .LockType = adLockOptimistic
            .CursorType = adOpenKeyset
            .Source = strSQL
            .Open
            .MoveFirst
            .Find "Course_Registration_ID = '" & intCourseID & "'"
            .Fields("Certificate") = txtCertificate(index).Text
            .Fields("Certificate_Date") = Date
            .Update
            .Close
        End With
        Set recCertificate = Nothing

do you know what i am doing wrong?? thank you so much.

Does it help if you change strSQL to?

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Course_Registration WHERE Course_Registration_ID = '" & _
                           intCourseID & "'"

Is Course_Registration_ID a numeric field?  Then your statement should be:

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Course_Registration "
strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE Course_Registration.Course_Registration_ID = " & intCourseID

If that does not work, put a break point the line after the strSQL statement and copy you sql string from the immediate window into you database and try to run the query, see if that works.

rs.Open strSQL, , adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly
intCourseID = txtCourseID(index).Text

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Course_Registration WHERE Course_Registration_ID=" & intCourseID

With recCertificate
            .ActiveConnection = cnConn
            .CursorLocation = adUseClient
            .Source = strSQL
            .Open strSQL, , adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
            .MoveFirst
            .Find "Course_Registration_ID = '" & intCourseID & "'"
            .Fields("Certificate") = txtCertificate(index).Text
            .Fields("Certificate_Date") = Date
            .Update
            .Close
End With
Set recCertificate = Nothing

since you have declared :

Dim intCourseID as integer

intCourseID = txtCourseID(index).Text

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Course_Registration "
         strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE Course_Registration.Course_Registration_ID = '" & _
                           intCourseID & "'"

I assume that the field Course_Registration.Course_Registration_ID is a NUMBER.  If that is correct then leonstryker is 100% correct.  get rid of the '....' around the intCourseID varaible in the SQL.  the '...' indicate that the value is a STRING of thext, not a NUMBER, and that will cause the Type Mismatch error.

mapy,

No, strings do need quotes.  Numbers do not.

Thanks for that.

String do need quotes. And Numbers do not need that.
