What is wrong with this code?

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [E-mail address] FROM [Broker Contacts] where [E-mail address] is not null  and [Broker Contacts].[contact name]=[Forms]![Loan Information]![Contact Name]")

I Get ERROR 3061,  Too few Parameters, Expected one"

THEN

I tried this instead:
 Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [E-mail address] FROM [Broker Contacts] where [E-mail address] is not null and [Broker Contacts].[contact name]=" & Me("contact Name") & "")

I get ERROR 3075, Sntax error,  (missing operator) in query expression ' [E-mail address] is not null and [Broker Contacts].[contact name]=Rob Martin'.

Any ideas????

Hi BonnyFreund,

When referring to [Contact Name], it need to be quoted in the string, - i.e.: a single quote must be put in front and behind the [Contact Name]:

 Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [E-mail address] FROM [Broker Contacts] where [E-mail address] is not null and [Broker Contacts].[contact name]='" & Me("contact Name") & "'")

Kind regards,
Sven

Two points,

- Use chr(34) to handle single quete required  in the SQL syntax and single quote inside a name like O'Conner:

 Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [E-mail address] FROM [Broker Contacts] where [E-mail address] is not null and [Broker Contacts].[contact name]=" & chr(34) & Me("contact Name") & CHR(34))

- In case where you have a name but no email, it may exclude even without "[E-mail address] is not null and".  If you need on purpose to show missing emails for you to fill them in, above SQL need some more revisions.

Cheers to you both.  I knew it was something silly like a missing tick mark, I just was tired of guessing the syntax.  I appreciate both of your help!
