Hi
Have some code that looks like this but returns type mistype error.

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String
stDocName = "ChooseAuditReadOnly"
stLinkCriteria = "[AuditNumber]= " & Me![AuditNumber] And "[Auditor] = " & Me![Auditor]

If I take out the "And" clause it works fine; so there is some problem with
And "[Auditor] = " & Me![Auditor]

The data types are matched so not sure what the problem is.
Thank you

the AND needs to be part of the string:
stLinkCriteria = "[AuditNumber]= " & Me![AuditNumber]  " And [Auditor] = " & Me![Auditor]

Thanks, tried this but now get compile error: expected end of statement. When I had the And outside of the string seems that correct values being being passed to the &Me statements.

Is Auditor a String field? does it contain text? you did say data types match, but is that on table level?


stLinkCriteria = "[AuditNumber]= " & Me![AuditNumber] And "[Auditor] = '" & Me![Auditor] & "'"

stLinkCriteria = "[AuditNumber]= " & Me![AuditNumber] &" And [Auditor] = '" & Me![Auditor] & "'"

Thanks very much for the help.

The only one that seems to work is
stLinkCriteria = "[AuditNumber]= " & Me![AuditNumber] &" And [Auditor] = '" & Me![Auditor] & "'"

Ma finding it difficult to get good written guidance on how to use quotes, wher eto place them etc. Are you aware of any good online reading sources.
Thanks again.
