Great Day! I am trying to open a form with the following criteria

    stLinkCriteria = "[CustomerID]=" & Me![CustomerID] & " AND [CustomerVehicleID] = " & [Forms]!frmCustomerContactData!frmCustomerVehiclesSub.Form!VehicleMake

but no records show up and there should be 6. When I open the form with only the first criteria

stLinkCriteria = "[CustomerID]=" & Me![CustomerID]

all of the customer’s vehicles show, but I want to only open vehicles that = a specific vehicle make

I did try to open the form with the second criteria

stLinkCriteria = "[CustomerVehicleID] = " & [Forms]!frmCustomerContactData!frmCustomerVehiclesSub.Form!VehicleMake

but again, no records showed up. I placed a temporary field in the subform called ‘VehicleMake’ to see if the value that I expect shows up when the  subform (the one calling the form that I want to meet the specific criteria), and it does. Not sure where to go from here.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you hnasr, while I was stripping the unnecessary objects from the database, I discovered that I needed to be looking at VehicleMakeID and not CustomerVehicleID. One of those rare occasions that someone pointed me in the right direction and I figured it out. Thanks .
