The same query can work using one variable in the where clause, but fail using another -- same table, same query.

set rs = db.OpenRecordset("Select * from tbl where TSid = " & lngTsID)

is one variation that fails.  lngTSIS is a number.  sometimes it works sometimes not.

I am sorry but I am afraid that does not help me.  I was asking for the specific values in your condition that fail and which are successful.

Hopefully, someone will step up to the plate with some insight.

Good luck.

I now have a work-around that copies the records from the one SQL Server table that is causing a problem to the Access front-end,  Then I've changed the query to use that data.  (The previous batch is deleted each time and the front-end compacts each night so it shouldn't get too much bigger.)
