I have an ASP page that when I filter by Ctegory, it works fine but when I try to filter by year i get an error saying

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e07'

Data type mismatch in criteria expression.

/energysysvc/4key/4KeyrecEdit.asp, line 51


and when i response.wrote the sql it is

SELECT * FROM tbl4key WHERE Year = '2009' ORDER BY 'Year';

the asp pages code is attached below
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<!--#include file="Tools/userinfo.inc"-->
<!--#include file="../includes/adovbs.inc"-->

This may be because "year" is a keyword and shouldn't be used as a column name, but you can also try:
     ...
     strSQL = strSQL & " ORDER BY Year;"
     ...

if you want to use Year as a column name, just put brackets around it:

If Request.Form("Year") <> "" Then
      strSQL = strSQL & "  [Year] = '" & Request.Form("Year") & "'"

Ok so when I edited the strSQL to remove the ' '  around Year it initially loads sorted correctly then when I try to filter by year it gives me the same error then I tried the [] and it is reflected in the response.write of the sql statement but it still gives the same error. let me change the name to FDate and see if it impacts it.

hmm still getting the error. the column is numbers so it should work. when I open the page before selecting any filters it dispalys all the data just fine. and if I filter by category it functions just fine but when I try to filter by year it gives me the error.

It hit me like a train out of the blue. I was using tick marks around a numeric value. when I removed the ' around the year it works!.
