VBA query recordset results and query results are different

hi guys, here's a snippet of my code below. when i run this parameterised query manually by double clicking on it, it's ok. gives me the right results. but when i put the query results into a recordset, things start going awry.

i've checked that the parameters i'm putting in the query through VBA is correct by using a debug.print method to check they are what i want. i've also closed all forms and run the query where it pops up the parameter popup and then i manually key in what the debug.print method wrote out. all's correct for this as well. just that when i put the query into a recordset i keep getting the wrong results. i'm really not sure why.

i've faced this problem before so i've tried all the solutions to no avail. last time there was a problem because in the query window i didnt right click and then click parameters and put in the parameters. but i've done that for this one. help help guys!!!

P.S. below i've got the code snippet for "New RPX SRs Assigned To Us" and also "Open RPX Cases". I added these 2 components at the same time. "Open RPX Cases" is doing ok no problem but the "New RPX SRs Assigned To Us" is giving a different result in the recordset vis a vis the manually opened query. so so weird. why why why guys?!?!!

Dim qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs As QueryDef
Set qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs = CurrentDb.QueryDefs("qryWBR-Servicing-Drivers-New RPX SRs")
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("[Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1StartDateValue]") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1StartDateValue
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("[Forms]![frmWBRPreparation]![Set1EndDateValue]") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1EndDateValue
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("Forms!frmWBRPreparation!txtInvisibleStaffNames") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!txtInvisibleStaffNames

Dim qdfOpenRPXCases As QueryDef
Set qdfOpenRPXCases = CurrentDb.QueryDefs("qryWBR-Servicing-Drivers-IDV RPX Open Cases")
qdfOpenRPXCases("[Forms]![frmWBRPreparation]![Set1EndDateValue]") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1EndDateValue
qdfOpenRPXCases("Forms!frmWBRPreparation!txtInvisibleStaffNames") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!txtInvisibleStaffNames


Dim rsqdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs As Recordset
Set rsqdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs = qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs.OpenRecordset()

Dim rsqdfOpenRPXCases As Recordset
Set rsqdfOpenRPXCases = qdfOpenRPXCases.OpenRecordset()


Do While Not rsqdfOpenRPXCases.EOF
    rstblConversionRate.FindFirst "[Team Members]= '" & rsqdfOpenRPXCases![Team Members] & "'"
    If Not rstblConversionRate.NoMatch Then
        rstblConversionRate.Edit
        rstblConversionRate![Open RPX Cases] = rsqdfOpenRPXCases![No of Open RPX Cases]
        rstblConversionRate.Update
    End If
    rsqdfOpenRPXCases.MoveNext
Loop

Do While Not rsqdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs.EOF
    rstblConversionRate.FindFirst "[Team Members]= '" & rsqdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs![Team Members] & "'"
    If Not rstblConversionRate.NoMatch Then
        rstblConversionRate.Edit
        rstblConversionRate![New SRs] = rsqdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs![No of New RPX SRs]
        rstblConversionRate.Update
    End If
    rsqdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs.MoveNext
Loop

i've thought of a few possible problems and checked to rule them out (but if yall think they are still problems let me know, i'll double / triple check)

- incorrect query name - resulting in pulling wrong info into recordset
- incorrect parameters in query design
- incorrect parameters in VBA
- wrong recordset
- wrong field in recordset

Whenever I use a querydef as the source of a recordset, I use a syntax similar to

Dim qdf as dap.querydef
Dim rs as dao.recordset

Set qdf =currentdb.querydefs("query name")
With qdf
    .parameters(1)=forms!formname.controlname
    .parameters(2) = forms!formname.control2name

    .parawmeters(parameter name)= forms!formname.control3name
End with
Set rs = add.openrecordset

You can use either the parameter # or name to identify the parameter.

can you post the SQL of the query?  It might have something to do with the way you defined your parameters, so include those lines from the SQL as well.  Notice the difference in the way your parameters are listed on the left side of the assignment.
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("[Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1StartDateValue]") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1StartDateValue
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("[Forms]![frmWBRPreparation]![Set1EndDateValue]") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1EndDateValue
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("Forms!frmWBRPreparation!txtInvisibleStaffNames") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!txtInvisibleStaffNames

Open in new window

The standard method would look like:

[Forms]![frmWBRPreparation]![Set1EndDateValue]

If you are only using this query for this purpose, and not as the rowsource for another form or query, I'd redefine the parameters as:
StartDate   (date/time)
EndDate    (date/Time)
Staff Names  (text)

And then rewrite those previous three lines as:
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("StartDate") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1StartDateValue
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("EndDate") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1EndDateValue
qdfNewRPXSRsAssignedToUs("StaffNames") = Forms!frmWBRPreparation!txtInvisibleStaffNames

What data types are assigned to those parameters?
Be sure to use the exact property of the controls:
Forms!frmWBRPreparation!Set1StartDateValue.Value

hrmm ok guys i think my whole system was a bit too messy. too many built up queries. i'm rewriting my system again now with a lot better practices in place - design patters, UML, optimsation, OOP - essentially much much better organisation and factoring (the step before refactoring hahaha) so i think the problems if they occur again will be much easier to spot!! thanks for your help though guys, ya'll are always so reliable - the best!! = ))
