Filter syntax issue

On a form I have a click event with this code:

    Me.Filter = "[Sale Price] = " & Chr(34) & Me.txtSalePrice & Chr(34)
    Me.FilterOn = True

But I get a data type mismatch error.  The field is a Currence formatted field so I'm sure the syntax of my code is wrong.  It works fine if the field is a text field.

Then,

I have the same issue with a date field... here's my code for that but I get a data type mismatch error there too...

    Me.Filter = "[Sale Date] = " & Chr(34) & Me.txtSaleDate & Chr(34)
    Me.FilterOn = True

???

You don't want the Chr(34), which is the quote character and used to delimit strings.  Since this is a date, you want:

Me.Filter = "[Sale Date] = #" & Format(Me.txtSaleDate,"mm/dd/yyyy") & "#"

 a numeric number would be:

Me.Filter = "[Sale Amount] = " & Me.txtSaleAmount
