I want to open a form to a specific record from an onclick event in a command button.  Here is my syntax but it doesn't work,  Can someone help?

docmd.openform "frmIncidentDataNEW",,,"[RecN]='" & me.cboSelectRecord &"'"

Note:  RecN is a number.

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmIncidentDataNEW",,,"[RecN]=" & Me.cboSelectRecord

if the bound column of the combo is not the RecN, you have to specify the column no

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmIncidentDataNEW",,,"[RecN]=" & Me.cboSelectRecord.column(1)
