Are you getting this error as the result of trying to Insert data into a table?

If you're inserting data into a table it means that you are attempting to insert at least one item that has a non-numeric value into a column that is integer only

If you're selecting data with a where clause like WHERE field > 10 it means that the column field is not a numeric data type and at least one row in your table has a value in field that is not an integer

If you're trying to do math on a field that has character data you'll have the smae problem.

You can create the same type of problem in a case statement.

How to solve it, depends on where you problem comes from.

If its the insert, you have a choice of excluding non-numeric rows or changing your destination data type.
If its the where clause putting quotes around the comparision would help (provided your data supports the results) where field > '10'
If its math, you need to exclude non numeric rows
If its a case statement you need to rethink it

I am passing this thru ADO.

 Set prmId = CmdEquipItems.CreateParameter("@ID", adInteger, adParamInput, 4, lblmodID.Caption)
    CmdEquipItems.Parameters.Append prmId

when it hits this line ,produces runtime errror 3421-Application uses value of the wrong type for the current operation.

I am not getting the error in the UPdate process, just when inserting a new record....

the label caption that's passed in is an implicit conersion to string what happens when you convert it first?

Set prmId = CmdEquipItems.CreateParameter("@ID", adInteger, adParamInput, 4, CInt(lblmodID.Caption))
    CmdEquipItems.Parameters.Append prmId

I get 'OVERFLOW' using the Cint(lblmodID.caption) when doing the edit/updates.

If I leave as is lblmodID.caption- It's oK no error.

I fixed it by changing the label to a textbox to read as

    Set prmId = CmdEquipItems.CreateParameter("@ID", adInteger, adParamInput, 4, txtID)
    CmdEquipItems.Parameters.Append prmId

This is OK now but the problem now is that it not writing/adding  the new ID and Publisher name in the Book table.
The rest of the data are entered/written to the Database though..

I fixed the problem in the ADO side.
