I have a form with two search combo boxs from it I have a list of Envelope numbers in one box and a list of Names in another box.  My first Combo box is labeled SearchEnvNo
and my second box is labeled
SearchLastNameFirst

After the update of information in the box my underlying form is suppose to display the appropriate record based on the search criteria.  My 2nd box which is searching for a string (LastnameFirst) works.  But I can't figure out how to enter the R.FindFirst for an Integer which is what EnvNo is.    My code stops at the     R.FindFirst ("[EnvNo] = " & Chr(34) & Me![SearchEnvNo] & Chr(34))

with the error Data Type Mismatch in Criteria Expression.
*********************************
my code so far looks like this:
************************************
(This one does not work- Data type mismatch)

Private Sub SearchEnvNo_AfterUpdate()
    Dim R As Recordset
    Set R = Me.RecordsetClone
    R.FindFirst ("[EnvNo] = " & Chr(34) & Me![SearchEnvNo] & Chr(34))
    Me.Bookmark = R.Bookmark
    Me![SearchEnvNo] = Null
End Sub
**********************************
(This one Works)
Private Sub SearchLastNameFirst_AfterUpdate()
    Dim R As Recordset
    Set R = Me.RecordsetClone
    R.FindFirst ("[LastnameFirst] = " & Chr(34) & Me![SearchLastnameFirst] & Chr(34))
    Me.Bookmark = R.Bookmark
    Me![SearchLastnameFirst].Value = ""
End Sub

***********************************
Can someone help me with the code I need to be able to search for an integer from my Field EnvNo  my combo box is unbound but I don't have anything set for Format

try changing

R.FindFirst ("[EnvNo] = " & Chr(34) & Me![SearchEnvNo] & Chr(34))

to

R.FindFirst ("[EnvNo] = "  & Me![SearchEnvNo] )
