SQL syntax error 80040e14

I am getting the following syntax error (missing operator) on the following sql statement.  Any ideas?

SQLQuery = "SELECT tblClients.ClientNumber, tblClients.NachaNameControlCode, tblClientsStates.StateId, tblClientsStates.State" _
    & "FROM tblClients INNER JOIN tblClientsStates ON tblClients.ClientNumber = tblClientsStates.ClientNumber" _
    & "WHERE (((tblClientsStates.State)=NJ ));"
    rst.Open SQLQuery, cnn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic

you missing a space " " just before end of each line?

try like:

SQLQuery = "SELECT tblClients.ClientNumber, tblClients.NachaNameControlCode, tblClientsStates.StateId, tblClientsStates.State " _
    & "FROM tblClients INNER JOIN tblClientsStates ON tblClients.ClientNumber = tblClientsStates.ClientNumber " _
    & "WHERE (((tblClientsStates.State)=NJ )); "
    rst.Open SQLQuery, cnn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic

Works now?

Thanks -- That was the problem -- Plus I needed ' ' around NJ

Like this
& "WHERE (((tblClientsStates.State)='NJ' )); "

ah.. damn! how can i miss that? ;-)

you're right for above discovery, but the space is still important too, so that the recordset object recognize your sql statement.
