2001 Runtime error when setting record source of form

Hello,

I am getting a runtime error of '2001' Previous operation canceled when I attempt to set the record source of a form at run time.  This is in Access 97.  I suspect the where clause is causing the problem as "SELECT * FROM qryFrmVariancesSource" seems to be working fine.  Could someone take a look.  Thanks.
Dim str As Variant
 
    Dim strArgs As String
   
    strArgs = Me.OpenArgs
    MsgBox strArgs
    str = MySplit(strArgs, ";")
    
    'Debug.Print str(1) & vbTab & str(2)
'Debug.Print "SELECT * FROM qryFrmVariancesSource WHERE TO = " & str(1)
Me.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM qryFrmVariancesSource WHERE [TO] = " & str(1)

Maybe str(1) needs to be quoted:

Me.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM qryFrmVariancesSource WHERE [TO] = '" & str(1) & "'"
