i'm trying to open a report filtered to a certain ref:

 Dim stDocName As String

DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewPreview, , wherecondition:="TransferRef = " &  Me.TransferRef

the transferref Datatype is Text because it is a mix of details which may be entered

Any Suggestion to why it does not filter the report????
