compile error. expected expression.

I get a compile error. expected expression.

sqlCode = "SELECT * FROM imail_tblIMail where [ClientID] =  & strClient & " And [EnvelopeImageName]   Like  '" & strDoc & "*'"

surely it's a single or double quote I'm missing but am stuck. :(

Any ideas?

The above assumes ClientiD is Numeric.

If it is TEXT, use this:

sqlCode = "SELECT * FROM imail_tblIMail where [ClientID] = '" & strClient & "' And [EnvelopeImageName]   Like  '" & strDoc & "*'"

In case that doesn't work, try this:

sqlCode = "SELECT * FROM imail_tblIMail where [ClientID] = " & Chr(34) & strClient & Chr(34) & " And [EnvelopeImageName] Like " & Chr(34) & strDoc & Chr(34) & " * """
