Getting a Parameter request on OpenForm criteria

I keep getting a "Enter Parameter Value"

With the Following Code:
Dim strQueNum As String
                     strQueNum = Me.List279

   Dim intCurrentRecord As Integer

'Store the current position
   intCurrentRecord = Me.CurrentRecord

'Open the popup form
    DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_FCastAdDetail", , , "[QueNum] =" & Me.List279
'Requery the form
    'Go to the stored current record
    DoCmd.GoToRecord acActiveDataObject, , acGoTo, intCurrentRecord

Open in new window

Q17 is the Value of Me.List279 - Which is the correct record ref. I want to open.

When I enter Q17 into the Parameter Query(Q17) it opens to the correct record.
I dont want a Parameter Query Named Q17  I want to open record Q17.....

What is wrong!
