Hi

I have an Access DB with a field called Office2003 - Data Type Yes\No.

I have a form in VB 2005 with a Checkbox called CBOffice2003.

When this is checked on the form I would like the DB to be updated.  I have tried as you can see below but I recieve the error:

Data type mismatch in criteria expression.
from
command.ExecuteNonQuery()

Private Sub SaveRecord()

        Dim conn As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;Data Source=" & Application.StartupPath & "\ITAssets.mdb")

        Dim sql As String = String.Empty
        Dim sql1 As String = String.Empty

        If _assetID = 0 Then

            sql = "INSERT INTO tblAssets (EFCRef,Type,Manufacturer,[User],Department,[Model],SerialNo)" & "VALUES('" & cboEFCRef.Text & "', '" & cboType.Text & "','" & cboManufacturer.Text & "','" & cboUser.Text & "','" & cboDepartment.Text & "','" & cboModel.Text & "','" & txtSerialNo.Text & "')"
            sql1 = "UPDATE tblEFCTAGS SET IsUsed = True WHERE EFCTAG='" & cboEFCRef.Text & "'"
        Else

            sql = "UPDATE tblAssets SET EFCRef ='" & cboEFCRef.Text & "'," & "Type='" & cboType.Text & "', Manufacturer='" & cboManufacturer.Text & "',[User]='" & cboUser.Text & "',Department='" & cboDepartment.Text & "',[Model]='" & cboModel.Text & "',SerialNo='" & txtSerialNo.Text & "',Office2003='" & CBOffice2003.Checked & "' WHERE assetID=" & _assetID
            sql1 = "UPDATE tblEFCTAGS SET IsUsed = True WHERE EFCTAG='" & cboEFCRef.Text & "'"

        End If

        conn.Open()

        Dim command As New OleDbCommand(sql, conn)
        Dim command1 As New OleDbCommand(sql1, conn)
        command.ExecuteNonQuery()
        command1.ExecuteNonQuery()


        conn.Close()

        Me.Close()

    End Sub

Thanks

"Type" is a reserved word in Access.  Try sticking it in square brackets.

No did not work

Everything worked fine until I added the checkbox - CBOffice2003.

If I remove - ,Office2003='" & CBOffice2003.Checked & "' from the UPDATE string it works fine.

Sorry, missed that.  CBOffice2003.Checked returns a Boolean, not a string, so it does not need single quotes around it.
