FindFirst Run-Time Error 3070:

I get a run time error that says:Microsoft Access Database engine does not recognize 'txtRequest' as a valid field name or expression.  Any Ideas why?
Private Sub txtDefinitions_Click()
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmRequestDefinitions", acNormal
    Dim GoHere As String
    GoHere = "[txtRequest]='" & Forms!frmAddDifferent!cboRequest & "'"
    Forms!frmRequestDefinitions.Recordset.FindFirst GoHere
End Sub

Open in new window

txtRequest I assume is a control and not it fact a field name, which is what would be required as the first part of a WHERE clause in a FIndFirst expression.

rst.FindFirst "[SomeFieldName] = " & <Some criteria expression >
