I have a command button on a form which when clicked I want to have a second form open to display only certain records.  Here is my code which is not working.

    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "frmPrintOrdTranx"
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, acNormal, , [Type] = "P", acFormEdit, acWindowNormal

Can some please help?

    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, acNormal, , "[Type] = 'P'", acFormEdit, acWindowNormal

Note that the P is wrapped with single quotes and the entire WHERE condition is wrapped in quotes.
