Runtime Error 2498

I am attempting to pull data in to a form from a combo box.  I have created a subform and used a query to pull the information from the combo box.  That part works.  I am trying to have the data change in the subform when you select a different value in the combo box.  I used the following code:

Private Sub Combo0_Change()
DoCmd.Requery [EDIT_QUERY subform]
End Sub

And I get Runtime Error 2498 'An expression you entered is the wrong data type for one of the arguments.'

Then that is the case.
You need to check your spelling and also make sure you are specifying the correct control in your main form.
A list of all controls in the main form is shown in the dropdown list at the start of the lower toolbar, when you are in form design view.
For a subform you need to be using the name of the subform container control which could be different from the subform itself.
