I have a command button on a form which when clicked is supposed to open a second form to a specified criteria.  Here is my code.  But it isn't working.  The second form is opening instead to the first record in the record source.  If a record doesn't exist yet for AssetN then the form is to open for a new record entry.

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmAssetRoomDetails", acNormal, "", [AssetN] = Me.txtAssetN, , acNormal

???
