VBA syntax - One field was a number field and now is a text field

An expert helped me with this code yesterday:

Me.txtCountListings = Nz(DCount("[ID]", "tblTransactions", "[ListingAgent] = " & Forms!frmSelectDateRangeAndMembers!txtMemberName & " And [ListMonth] = " & Forms!frmSelectDateRangeAndMembers!txtMonthName & " And [ListYear] = " & Forms!frmSelectDateRangeAndMembers!txtYear), 0)

But now "txtMonthName" is a text field instead of a number field.  What should the syntax be to accommodate this change?

Try this (embedded quotes):

Me.txtCountListings = Nz(DCount("[ID]", "tblTransactions", "[ListingAgent] = " & Forms!frmSelectDateRangeAndMembers!txtMemberName & " And [ListMonth] = '" & Forms!frmSelectDateRangeAndMembers!txtMonthName & "' And [ListYear] = " & Forms!frmSelectDateRangeAndMembers!txtYear), 0)

Double-check (again) the data type of all fields in tblTransactions.

For the above syntax, you should have

ListMonth -  Text
ListingAgent - Numeric
ListYear - Numeric
