In the attached example, form MasterBrokerAcct, "Edit" button is supposed to open another form, but it doesn't work. The sample is from Access Inside Out book. It runs fine there. Can't figure out why...
Thanks

change this line

    strWhere = "[AcctNumber] IN (" & strWhere & ")"


to

    strWhere = "[AcctNumber] IN ('" & strWhere & "')"

The problem is that the field you are using is a string and therefore you need the ' or " around the values. As you have the code written to use the multiselect listbox you therefore need to fix the line

        strWhere = strWhere & Me!lstBrokerAcct.Column(0, varItem) & ","

so it reads as

        strWhere = strWhere & Chr(39) & Me!lstBrokerAcct.Column(0, varItem) & Chr(39) & ","

Cheers, Andrew

because the AcctNumber field is a Text type of data

actually this is the codes that you need to use, the first one above will fail if you choose more than one item from the listbox


Private Sub cmdSome_Click()
Dim strWhere As String, varItem As Variant
    ' Request to edit items selected in the list box
    ' If no items selected, then nothing to do
    If Me!lstBrokerAcct.ItemsSelected.Count = 0 Then Exit Sub
    ' Loop through the items selected collection
    For Each varItem In Me!lstBrokerAcct.ItemsSelected
        ' Grab the CompanyID column for each selected item

'*** this line was changed *****
        strWhere = strWhere & Chr(39) & Me!lstBrokerAcct.Column(0, varItem) & Chr(39) & ","
    Next varItem
    ' Throw away the extra comma on the "IN" string
    strWhere = Left$(strWhere, Len(strWhere) - 1)
    ' Open the invoices form filtered on the selected invoices
    strWhere = "[AcctNumber] IN (" & strWhere & ")"
    DoCmd.OpenForm FormName:="frmBrokerAcctEdit", wherecondition:=strWhere
    ' Put the focus on the form
    Forms!frmBrokerAcctEdit.SetFocus
    DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name
End Sub
