Problem with sql query and variable in access

Hi,
   I have written some code which basically takes the value of a query from a dropdown, as well as values from 2 listboxes which contain the start range and end range for an ID.....  This is the code I have:

Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
    Dim xlApp As Object
    Dim xlWb As Object
    Dim xlWs As Object
    Dim Counter As Long
    Dim QueryName As String
    Dim SaveToPath As String
    Dim TemplatePath As String
    Dim firstidnum As String
    Dim secondidnum As String
    
    firstidnum = firstid.Value
    secondidnum = secondid.Value
    
    QueryName = template_dropdown.Value
    SaveToPath = "\\server\share\Database\Generated Reports\" & QueryName & "_"
    
    If QueryName = "DCC" Then
        TemplatePath = "\\server\share\Database\comments-template-modified.xlsx"
    ElseIf QueryName = "DCC Adult" Then
        TemplatePath = "\\server\share\Database\comments-template-modified.xlsx"
    ElseIf QueryName = "Healthcare Report" Then
        TemplatePath = "\\server\share\Database\comments-template-modified.xlsx"
    Else
        TemplatePath = "\\server\share\Database\comments-template.xlsx"
    End If  
    
    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM " & QueryName & " WHERE ID BETWEEN " & firstidnum & " AND " & secondidnum & "")
 
    Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    xlApp.DisplayAlerts = False
    Set xlWb = xlApp.Workbooks.Add(TemplatePath)
    Set xlWs = xlWb.ActiveSheet
   With xlWs
        For Counter = 0 To rs.Fields.Count - 1
            .Cells(2, 1).CopyFromRecordset rs
        Next
 '       .Cells(2, 1).CopyFromRecordset rs
    End With
    xlWb.SaveAs SaveToPath & Format(Now, "yyyymmdd") & ".xlsx"
    xlWb.Close False
    xlApp.DisplayAlerts = True
    Set xlWs = Nothing
    Set xlWb = Nothing
    xlApp.Quit
    Set xlApp = Nothing
    rs.Close
    Set rs = Nothing
 
    MsgBox "The select report has been generated..."

Open in new window

The problem is with this line here:

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM " & QueryName & " WHERE ID BETWEEN " & firstidnum & " AND " & secondidnum & "")

It keeps giving me a "Syntax error in FROM clause"

Basically the value QueryName is from a dropdown listbox which contains all the queries, I then want to do a BETWEEN statement, so only the ID's selected via firstidnum and secondidnum are output...

Can anyone help?

Cheers

Damian

test this, wrap the variable "QueryName" in brackets

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM  [" & QueryName & "]  WHERE ID BETWEEN " & firstidnum & " AND " & secondidnum & "")
