Use value from subform control on the subform

I have a subform that lists user names, their id and if they have job titel or not.  I also have an edit button next to the rowon the subform.  Iwant the use to be able t hit this "edit" button and have another form open to the approriate record for the employee.  But I think I am trying to reference teh control incorrect as what I have does not work.  I am assumeing ME refers to the parent form, frmEmpsNoJobId is the subform and EmpUserID is the text control on the subform that I want to use as the parameter to open the frmEmployees.  This is on an Access 2003 form using VBA

End Sub

sb

 DoCmd.OpenForm "frmEmployees", , , "[EmpUserID]=" &Me.EmpUserID

If ID is numeric

or this if it is a string:
 DoCmd.OpenForm "frmEmployees", , , "[EmpUserID]=" & "'" & Me.EmpUserID &"'"
