Access SQL stored procedure error

I have an Access 2007 app that updates a field on a SQL table using a SQL stored procedure.

On one users PC they get "Error 13 Type Mismatch". I tried logging in as them on my PC and it works fine.

I'm using a DSN less connection string could this be the issue? e.g.
Const strCon = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Data Source=MYSERVER;Initial Catalog=MYDB;User Id=User;Password=Password"

The stored procedure receives any parameter?

A type mismatch error occurs when you rely on implicit converts. Thus a string is as assigned to a number, but the content is not one. The first candidate are different regional and date/time settings. Access/VBA can only handle US date in a save manner. Another problem may be different thousand separator and comma settings.

And last, but not least, an user input is used without validation. And the user has entered invalid data.

Complete Red Herring this one. I thought it was failing on the SP but it actually failed on the bit where I check the form fields are filled in! (If field ="" then exit..)
I removed the checking and it works.

Not sure why it worked on my full Access but not on a users runtime version?

What does field refer to? It may contain NULL or StringEmpty for different reasons.

All I'm doing is:-
if isnull(field) or field ="" then
msgbox "Blah"
exit sub
End if

Changed to this and it works fine, not sure why?

If Len(Me!TxtCustPO) = 0 Then
MsgBox "Enter PO number!"
Exit Sub
End If
If IsNull(Me!TxtCustPO) Then
MsgBox "Enter PO number!"
Exit Sub
End If

NULL and empty string are different.

Thus the good 'ol (field & "") = "" or Len(field & "") > 0 test. Cause even when field is NULL adding an emptry string will give you always an empty string.
