.findfirst syntax error

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I was hoping to loop around rstcodestoprocess grabbing the [mvris code] each time and then updating a field in the bestmatch table via rstbestmatch.

However the findfirst wont work. at the moment it returns (strcriteria) "mvris code=1GIAO" I have tried "[mvris code]=1GIAO" that fails too.

help would be appreciated
Private Sub BtnUpdateBestmatch_Click()

Dim db As Database
Dim rstBestMatch As DAO.Recordset
Dim RstCodestoProcess As DAO.Recordset
Dim strCriteria As String

Set db = CurrentDb
Set rstBestMatch = db.OpenRecordset("BestMatch", dbOpenSnapshot)
Set RstCodestoProcess = db.OpenRecordset("QryTotalCWCodestoProcess", dbOpenSnapshot)
With RstCodestoProcess

Do While Not .EOF
    strCriteria = "mvris code=" & RstCodestoProcess![MVRIS CODE]
    With rstBestMatch
        .FindFirst (strCriteria)
        .Fields("ForDeletionafterDataUpdate").Value = True
    End With


End With

End Sub
