An expression you entered is the wrong data type for one of the arguments

I have created a form called frmContactCategoryFilter which lists ContactCategory in an unbound box
When the user selects a ContactCategory and clicks OK, frmContact is opened showing only records which have the same ContactCategoryID as the selection
The 'OK' button has the following code

    Dim DocName As String
    Dim LinkCriteria As String

    DocName = "frmContact"
    LinkCriteria = "[ContactCategoryID] = Forms![frmContactCategoryFilter]![lstContactCategory]"
    DoCmd.OpenForm DocName, , , LinkCriteria
           
And it works.
When frmContact opens, I would like frmContactCategoryFilter to close.

However, whenever I try to add a DoCmd.Close , frmContact opens showing the correct records,
the message "An expression you entered is the wrong data type for one of the arguments" is displayed
and frmContactCategoryFilter remains open.

What should I do?

I can't see how it works in either case, this line:

    LinkCriteria = "[ContactCategoryID] = Forms![frmContactCategoryFilter]![lstContactCategory]"

Should read:

    LinkCriteria = "[ContactCategoryID] = " &  Forms![frmContactCategoryFilter]![lstContactCategory]
