The key must be a string, that is it must at least start with an alpha.  Then it can be alpha or numeric.

Many people (include me) want to use the key to hold an ID to the database.  What I do is append the letter K in front of the actual ID

Dim strKey as String
strKey = "K" & rs.fields("ID")

Thanks!!
I got the solution. I was trying to assign a number as a string as key of a node.
I tried the concatenated alphanumeric value starting with an alpha and it worked!!!
