VB in MS Access

We have a module that reads records from 1 table and adds them to others.  The data type on a field changed from numeric to text and we now get a data type mismatch error.  I've confirmed all the tables are defined correctly.  There must be an issue with the syntax of the code.  The If statement below is where it fails

 Do Until .EOF
            Set rstApplicant = db.OpenRecordset("Charity Applicant", dbOpenDynaset)
            If DCount("*", "Charity Applicant", "[MRN] = " & ![MRN]) = 0 Then...

I appreciate your help!

Try with:

 If DCount("*", "Charity Applicant", "[MRN] = '" & ![MRN] & "'") = 0 Then...

Thank you for your solution.  

 Now I get a data type mismatch on the following code:  
MRN is text and application no is numeric.  When I tried putting quotes around MRN it failed to compile.


  If boaddapplication = False Then
                               rstAccount.Fields("Application No") = _
                            (Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = " & ![MRN]), 0) + 1)
                   Else
                         rstAccount.Fields("Application No") = _
                            (Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = " & ![MRN]), 0))

I guess they should read:

     Val(Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = '" & ![MRN] & "'"), "0")) + 1

and:
     Val(Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = '" & ![MRN] & "'"), "0"))

Great!  Thank you again!  Hopefully, the last issue...

As the code executes further I get a data type conversion error, see below.  It stops on the account number which is defined as numeric.

           If Not boDoNotContinue Then
                If DCount("*", "Charity Applicant Accounts", "[Acct No] = " & ![Acct No]) > 0 Then
                    udfReportOutput ![MRN], ![Acct No], 2
                Else
                    Set rstAccount = db.OpenRecordset("Charity Applicant Accounts", dbOpenDynaset)
                    rstAccount.AddNew
                        rstAccount.Fields("MRN") = ![MRN]
                   If boaddapplication = False Then
                               rstAccount.Fields("Application No") = _
                    Val(Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = '" & ![MRN] & "'"), "0")) + 1
            '    (Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = '" & ![MRN] & "'"), 0) + 1)
           
                       
                   Else
                         rstAccount.Fields("Application No") = _
                           Val(Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = '" & ![MRN] & "'"), "0"))
                    '        (Nz(DMax("[Application No]", "[Charity Applicant Accounts]", "[MRN] = '" & ![MRN] & "'"), 0))
                   End If
                        rstAccount.Fields("Acct No") = ![Acct No]             <=======     Debugger stops here
                        rstAccount.Fields("Account Bal") = ![Account Bal]
                        rstAccount.Fields("Adm Date") = ![Adm Date]

Hard to tell, but probably ![Acct No] is Null
Insert a debug line and watch:

Debug.Print "Acct No:", ![Acct No]
rstAccount.Fields("Acct No") = ![Acct No]             <=======     Debugger stops here
