Experts, I am trying to open a form with 2 LiKE conditions.  I am getting a datatype mismatch error.  I only get this error after adding the second like condtion.  If I leave as only 1 LIKE condition then it works.  

DoCmd.OpenForm "Project Datasheet subform_3", acFormDS, , "[End User] Like '" & Left(Me.txtEndUser, 4) & "*'" Or "[UltimateEndUser] Like '" & Left(Me.txtEndUser, 4) & "*'", , acDialog

thank you

Try this

"[End User] Like '" & Left(Me.txtEndUser, 4) & "*' Or [UltimateEndUser] Like '" & Left(Me.txtEndUser, 4) & "*'",
