Adding records

Hi there,
I have a button on an unbound form with the following code attached

Private Sub btnEmailCC_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_btnEmailCC_Click
Dim strWhereCriteria As String
strWhereCriteria = "shipnote = Forms!frmXLNote!txtNoteNum"
Dim Aresponse As Integer
    Aresponse = MsgBox("Was the pallet count correct?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Pallets Correct ?")
    If Aresponse = vbYes Then
        DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport, "rptSpecNote2", acFormatPDF, _
        "someone@somewhere.com;someoneelse@somewhereelse.com", , , "Despatch Note", _
        "Please see attached PDF re latest Despatch Note."
        btnUpDate.Visible = True
        btnUpDate.SetFocus
        btnEmailCC.Visible = False
        MsgBox "You must now Update the Call-Off!", vbCritical, "Update!"
    End If
    If Aresponse = vbNo Then
        DoCmd.OpenForm "frmEditCCnote", , , strWhereCriteria
    End If
Exit_btnEmailCC_Click:
    Exit Sub
Err_btnEmailCC_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description, vbOKOnly, "An Error has occured, please inform S.Byrom"
    Resume Exit_btnEmailCC_Click
End Sub

When the user clicks "No" to edit the items shipped it opens a split form which is bound to a table (tblStordProds) and has a button on it to add a record if needed. The code attached to the button is;

Private Sub btnAdd_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_btnClose_Click
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSelectRecord
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdCopy
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdPasteAppend
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
    MsgBox "You must now change the added Product" & vbCrLf & _
    "to the product you missed originally." & vbCrLf & _
    "Use the drop-down arrow to change it." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
    "DO NOT FORGET TO ADJUST THE QUANTITY!", vbCritical, "IMPORTANT"
Exit_btnClose_Click:
    Exit Sub
Err_btnClose_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description, vbOKOnly, "An Error has occured, Please inform S.Byrom"
    Resume Exit_btnClose_Click
End Sub

However, when I add a record using the button on the second form and then close it. It does not save the record just added.
Is it because the records are filtered in the open argument from the previous form?
If so, how can I get around this? If not, why will it not add a record to the table?

Thanks as always for your time.

Try changing this line:

strWhereCriteria = "shipnote = Forms!frmXLNote!txtNoteNum"

to:

strWhereCriteria = "shipnote = " & Forms!frmXLNote!txtNoteNum


also, the line:    docmd.runcommand accmdgotorecord,, acnewrec
      is superfluous

Thanks for your comment dq.
I did as you suggested and also removed the redundant line.
It still doesn't save the record though.

Thanks dq, I found out what was the problem. The ShipNote number was not copying, so when I re-opened the form using the where condition then naturally the newly added record would not show.
I managed to sort it out.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction with the where criteria.
