Ms Access VBA Type MisMatch Error 13.  Can't resolve it.

I have a listbox on a form, I want to use the number in field 4 to open another form and open the record that has that unique number.

The number in Field 4 is an AutoNumber - Long Integer. It is simple a unique serial number for each record so I can keep them all unique.

My goal is to dblClick a line in the list box and then have that record open in the form that allows me to fully manage the record.

I get an Error 13 Type Mismatch on this line
stLinkCriteria = "[Service_Tag_No] = " '" & [List78]

Open in new window


All MsgBoxes provide the correct info
The RowSource in List78 is a SQL statement with Binding on Column 4

Here is my failing code:
Private Sub List78_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As Integer
    stDocName = "Call_Ticket"
    MsgBox "We have arrived"
    MsgBox stDocName
    MsgBox Me![List78]
    MsgBox [List78]
    stLinkCriteria = "[Service_Tag_No] = " '" & [List78]
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria
    
End Sub

Open in new window


I think the problem is that I am not referencing the field on the next form properly. As I understand stLinkCriteria, it should open the record where Field = Data.

The field on the next form is a text box and it is called Service_Tag_No
Its ControlSource is Service_Tag_Number_Auto

Thanks for any help you can provide.

If Service_Tag_No is text:
stLinkCriteria = "[Service_Tag_No] = '" & [List78] & "'"

Open in new window

If Service_Tag_No is a number:
stLinkCriteria = "[Service_Tag_No] = " & [List78]

Open in new window

"The number in Field 4 is an AutoNumber - Long Integer"

Try this:

stLinkCriteria = "[Service_Tag_No] = " & CLng(Me.List78)

Field 4, I'm assuming, is the fourth column in your listbox.
Your ListBox value may not be this 4th column value.

Put a break in your code and view the value of "me.list78".
It's probably not the value you are expecting.

So, you must change your criteria to apply the 4th column value.

Sage:
Both return Type Mismatch
Column 4 is correct, I use the MsgBoxes above to confirm.

Savant:
It returns a Type Mismatch

I missed this earlier.  You need to change the variable to a string or variant:
Dim stLinkCriteria As String

Open in new window
