Steve,

 You seem to be struggling a bit with passing strings in code.  With that, you might want to read through this:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/A_12-Dlookup-and-the-Domain-Functions.html

A large part of that article covers the passing of strings within a string (which you often do in code).

 Might help clear some things up for you.

Jim.
