Problem passing an integer to a Filter in Access 2010 VBA

I am having a problem applying a filter of a form using a dropdown with the following code

Private Sub ActionFilter_AfterUpdate()
Dim intActionTypeID As Integer


intActionTypeID = Me.ActionFilter.Column(0)

MsgBox strActionTypeID  '(just put this here to check integer is correct)


Me.Filter = "[ActionTypeID] = '" & strActionTypeID & "'"

Me.FilterOn = True
End Sub

Open in new window


It appears the value (1) is being passed, but I get the message "The search key was not found in any record", so I am assuming the problem is in ... '" & strActionTypeID & "'", but I can't work out what it is. If I use Me.Filter = "[ActionTypeID] = 1" then it works.

Can anyone help before I jump out the Window?

If the field ActionTypeID is a number field then you do not want the ' '.

Me.Filter = "[ActionTypeID] = " & strActionTypeID
