Can you see a syntax error here please. I get message below.

Dim rstIncomesSQL As String
Dim rstIncomes As DAO.Recordset

Dim strClientId As String

strClientId = "4105095040088"

rstIncomesSQL = "SELECT tblIncomeAndInvestments.* FROM tblIncomeAndInvestments WHERE (tblIncomeAndInvestments.[IncGrowProp])='Income' AND (tblIncomeAndInvestments.[CLIENTID)]= '" & strClientId & "';"

Set rstIncomes = db.OpenRecordset(rstIncomesSQL, dbOpenSnapshot)

Open in new window


Syntax error message
This however works fine:

rstIncomesSQL = "SELECT tblIncomeAndInvestments.* FROM tblIncomeAndInvestments WHERE (tblIncomeAndInvestments.CLIENTID)= '" & strClientId & "';"

Open in new window


The problem comes when I add the

(tblIncomeAndInvestments.[IncGrowProp])='Income' AND   section. "Income" is a value in IncGrowProp field.

Here is a snap of the table

You've got [CLIENTID)] - open hard bracket - CLIENTID - close soft bracket - close hard bracket.

You need [CLIENTID]) - open hard bracket - CLIENTID - close hard bracket - close soft bracket

You've got a typo:
tblIncomeAndInvestments.[CLIENTID)]
should be:
tblIncomeAndInvestments.[CLIENTID])
