4 table join in VB6 MS access

I've been doing some looking and have found a number of topics that address my issue of joining 4 tables from an MS access db in VB6 but none work.  I still get a "too few parameters, 1 expected" error.  It's driving me crazy.  I've put the latest code below but it still gives me that error.  I feel I've been in a big circle.

Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,
bob...

P.S. I didn;t know how to go back and add to my previous question so I added a new one here.
strsql = "SELECT [Qualifications].*, [QualificationCourses].*, [Roster].*, [Arms].* "
        strsql = strsql & " FROM ((( Qualifications "
        strsql = strsql & " INNER JOIN QualificationCourses ON Qualifications.[CourseID] = QualificationCourses.[ID]) "
        strsql = strsql & " INNER JOIN Roster on Qualifications.[AgentID] = Roster.[ID])"
        strsql = strsql & " INNER JOIN Arms on Qualifications.[ArmsID] = Arms.[ID]) "
        strsql = strsql & " WHERE [Qualifications].License = '" & Trim(userAdminMOD.currentUser.license) & "'"

try like this
strsql = "SELECT [Qualifications].*, [QualificationCourses].*, [Roster].*, [Arms].* "
strsql = strsql & " FROM Qualifications "
strsql = strsql & " INNER JOIN QualificationCourses ON Qualifications.[CourseID] = QualificationCourses.[ID] "
strsql = strsql & " INNER JOIN Roster on Qualifications.[AgentID] = Roster.[ID]"
strsql = strsql & " INNER JOIN Arms on Qualifications.[ArmsID] = Arms.[ID] "
strsql = strsql & " WHERE [Qualifications].License = '" & Trim(userAdminMOD.currentUser.license) & "'"

Cant see whats wrong with your sql. Maybe fault is elsewhere where you are using this sql. Might be worth posting how you run this sql. Also, did you step thru the code to find the exact line where it is failing?

FYI
Another way, one I prefer over inner joins is to simply list the tables then perform the joins using the where clause
eg

strsql = "SELECT Qualifications.*, QualificationCourses.*, Roster.*, Arms.* "
strsql = strsql & " FROM Qualifications, QualificationCourses, Roster, Arms "
strsql = strsql & " WHERE Qualifications.CourseID = QualificationCourses.ID "
strsql = strsql & " AND Qualifications.AgentID = Roster.ID"
strsql = strsql & " AND Qualifications.ArmsID = Arms.ID "
strsql = strsql & " AND Qualifications.License = '" & Trim(userAdminMOD.currentUser.license) & "'"


select columns
from
where table1.somefield = table2.somefield
and table1.somefield = table3.somefield

etc

The error "too few parameters, 1 expected" implies you have a typo in one of the field names you have specified in the SQL so triple check each field in each table mentiones, specifically whatching out for spaces etc.

If you can take the result of the SQL into Access and paste into a queries SQL view and it will tell your there when you run it which field it doesn't like as it will as you for a value for it.

Cheers, Andrew

Thanks to all that replied.  The problem was in the spelling of one of the field names (I've only been writing this code for 18 years) but the suggestion to not use INNER JOINS was brilliant and I learned a new way of creating SQL statements this way.  A LOT simplier!!!  Thanks again everyone.  Experts Exchange is great... and so are all of the experts who participate!!!
Best to All!

In case you all didn't catch my humor... I misspelled "simpiler".
