Error running delete query


I'm getting an error on the line of code given, any ideas why - syntax seems fine?

Set lessonTable = databaseConnection.OpenRecordset("DELETE * FROM StudentLesson WHERE IsLessonTypePlanned=TRUE AND LessonPlanID=" & lstLessonPlans.ItemData(lstLessonPlans.ListIndex) & " AND LessonStatus=8")

several things: DELETE does not open a recordset... so use execute instead of openrecordset
next, what is the database? I assume access?
next, waht is the data type of IsLessonTypePlanned and LessonPlanID?

finally, what is the EXACT error message, please?

Thought it was quite strange returning a recordset - execute works fine, thanks! :-)
