Pass a parameter in VBA based on external variable value

I have a docmd in VBA that is an append query, but I need to check an external datapoint and depending on that datapoint, the append query should alter the text that is appended to the table.  Am I back to not getting the quotes correct or should the strType be in another format?

If Forms!frmImportMenuFSC.cboForecast = "Budget" Then
    strType = "BUDFSCHSN"
ElseIf Forms!frmImportMenuFSC.cboForecast = "R1" Then
    strType = "R1FSCHSN"
ElseIf Forms!frmImportMenuFSC.cboForecast = "R2" Then
    strType = "R2FSCHSN"
End If


strAppendData = "INSERT INTO tblFSCDetail ( SAP, WorksheetID, ForecastYear, Jan, " & _
    "Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, [Dec] ) " & _
    "SELECT tblTempRetail.SAP," & " ' strType ' " & " AS WorksheetID, " & _
    "FORMS!frmImportMenuFSC.txtForecastYear AS ForecastYear, " & _
    "tblTempRetail.Jan, tblTempRetail.Feb, tblTempRetail.Mar, " & _
    "tblTempRetail.Apr , tblTempRetail.May, tblTempRetail.Jun, " & _
    "tblTempRetail.Jul, tblTempRetail.Aug, tblTempRetail.Sep, " & _
    "tblTempRetail.Oct, tblTempRetail.Nov, tblTempRetail.Dec " & _
    "FROM tblTempRetail "

Instead of:
 "SELECT tblTempRetail.SAP," & " ' strType ' " & " AS WorksheetID, " & _

Try:
 "SELECT tblTempRetail.SAP, '" &  strType   & "' AS WorksheetID, " & _

For strType as a string:
>& " ' strType ' " &
should be & "'" & strType & "'" &
