what is the Data Type of field CrsType ?

if number

try this

Set CBEDSRst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select Distinct RecType, CBEDSCourse from [" & TblNmStr & "] WHERE RecType='C' and CrsType=" & CTypeArr(CTypeLpCnt) & " & PTCritArr(PTypeLpCnt))

or this

Set CBEDSRst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select Distinct RecType, CBEDSCourse from [" & TblNmStr & "] WHERE RecType='C' and CrsType=" & CTypeArr(CTypeLpCnt)  & PTCritArr(PTypeLpCnt))

Try added a debug .print to write your query string to the immediate window.  Is the query string what you are expecting?

If not, copy and paste it in your next comment.

Also, what is the datatype of the CrsType field?
And is TblNmStr a string variable or the name of an actual table?

Dim strSQL as string
strSQL = "Select Distinct RecType, CBEDSCourse from [" & TblNmStr &  "] WHERE RecType='C' and CrsType='" & CTypeArr(CTypeLpCnt) & "' " & PTCritArr(PTypeLpCnt))
debug.print strSQL
Set CBEDSRst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strSQL)

Open in new window

Hi Capricorn1,

Both of the fields are numbers

the compiler did not like the line dropping those chracters ' and " added the editing back in and the compiler accepted the line again

what is strange is I have an access 2003 version of the program and this line works but having the problem with same line in the Access 2007 version

You might have missed my comment earlier.

Is TblNmStr a string variable or the name of an actual table?

If it is an actual table name, try this:

Dim strSQL as string
strSQL = "Select Distinct RecType, CBEDSCourse from  [TblNmStr] WHERE RecType='C' and CrsType=" & CTypeArr(CTypeLpCnt) &  PTCritArr(PTypeLpCnt))
debug.print strSQL
Set CBEDSRst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strSQL)

Open in new window


The debug.print strSQL line will write the query string to the debugger window.

If you copy/paste it here, it will give us a better idea of where your query is going wrong.

<what is strange is I have an access 2003 version of the program and this line works but having the problem with same line in the Access 2007 version >

so the line works in A2003,

open your VBA window, then
Tools > References

see if you have a reference with "MISSING" prefix
uncheck and select the available version

Do a DEBUG > COMPILE

make sure that all errors raised is corrected
