I am getting type mismatch when I need to get a record count based on the following dCount. (see '>>>>>)  I attempting do determine if records exists in the TblsummaryQuartersFrozen, where the quarter = (i) and if true then proceed to process queries..

I have tried changing the variable type, single, string, variant, etc - no luck - What am I missing:

   
Dim ExtractDate As Date
Dim curDB As DAO.Database
Dim strSQL As String, strSQL1 As String
Dim nCt As Variant
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset, rs1 As DAO.Recordset
Dim i As Integer

 strSQL = "Select Year, FreezeQ1, FreezeQ2, FreezeQ3, FreezeQ4 from tblcurrent"

    Set rs = curDB.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
   For i = 1 To 4
">>>>>>        nCt = Nz(DCount("Quarter", "tblSummaryQuartersFrozen", "Quarter = " & i And "Year =" & Year(Date)))
           If rs.Fields("CountOfQuarter") > 0 Then
           
           ' If nCt = 0 Then
                GoTo cont:
            ElseIf rs.Fields("FreezeQ" & (i)) = -1 Then
                curDB.Execute ("DELETE *" & _
                               " FROM tblSummary" & _
                               " WHERE Quarter = " & i And "Year =" & Year(Date))
                curDB.Execute ("INSERT INTO tblSummary" & _
                               "Select *" & _
                               " FROM tblSummaryQuartersFrozen" & _
                               " WHERE Quarter = " & i And "Year =" & Year(Date))
                rs.MoveNext
            End If
     Next i

As DCount returns 0 as a minimum, it should read:

Dim nCt As Long

nCt = DCount("*", "tblSummaryQuartersFrozen", "Quarter = " & i & " And Year = " & Year(Date) & "")

I have tried both suggestions and I am still getting the same error message.

Dim curDB As DAO.Database
Dim strSQL As String, strSQL1 As String
Dim nCt As Long
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset, rs1 As DAO.Recordset
Dim i As Integer

    strSQL = "Select Year, FreezeQ1, FreezeQ2, FreezeQ3, FreezeQ4 from tblcurrent"

    Set rs = curDB.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
'    strSQL1 = "SELECT Count(Quarter) AS CountOfQuarter, Quarter" & _
'                " FROM tblSummaryQuartersFrozen" & _
'                " WHERE (((Year) = Year(Date)))" & _
'                " GROUP BY Quarter" & _
'                " HAVING (((Quarter)='1')) OR (((Quarter)='2')) OR (((Quarter)='3')) OR (((Quarter)='4'))"
'     Set rs1 = curDB.OpenRecordset(strSQL1)
   For i = 1 To 4
  ' Dim nCt As Long
nCt = DCount("*", "tblSummaryQuartersFrozen", "Quarter = " & i & " And Year = " & Year(Date) & "")

    nCt = Nz(DCount("Quarter", "tblSummaryQuartersFrozen", "Quarter = " & i & " And Year =" & Year(Date)))
   '     nCt = Nz(DCount("*", "tblSummaryQuartersFrozen", "Quarter = " & i And "Year =" & Year(Date)))

You have used reserved names as column names and so you need to be diligent about enclosing all the mis-named columns in square brackets.  If you don't, you run the risk of the column name being interpreted as if it were the function.

In the future, try to avoid using reserved words as column names.  Access will warn you in some cases but perhaps not all.  The best way to be sure you are not running into any name that is already taken is to use compound words.  Such as SaleDate, ForecastYear, CompanyName.  These are more descriptive and you can be pretty sure that Access, Jet/ACE, and VBA haven't already squatted on them.
