For some reason I cant get filter to work.

I do something like :

adoRec.Filter = "Column_Name = " & variable

it should be that simple no ? Dont know why it wont work. Do I have to have a refference in my application ?

May you guys have a better suggestion.

I have log files that I have to parse and then import into the database. There can be upwards of 5,000 lines per file.

I have to take each line, see if it is already in the database. If not, I have to compare if it is an existing location or not, if it is an existing computer or not.

As you can see it can get extremely time consuming.

I thought if I could use the filter it would be faster because I wouldn't have to requery every time I pass through a line.

Your help would be appreciated.

Here is the code

    rsMachine.Filter = "Machine Name = '" & UCase(strMachineName) & "'"
gives me error code 3001

arguments are of the wrong type, out of range or in conflict.
