AFAICT, ...you can try it something like this:
Docmd.OpenForm "Human_P_T_frm",,,[Event_Description]=" & "'" & [Event_Description] & "'"

Is SS_OpenForm a custom function?  (it would help to see the function declaration).

That said, it looks like your criteria is missing an opening quote, so try this perhaps:


SS_OpenForm  "Human_P_T_frm",  "[Event_Description]=" & "'" & [Event_Description] & "'" 

Open in new window

I learned a good practice (I think) is to use char(34) instead of " when ever it should placed inside another quote
you will always know what " will be inside your string :)

It should probably read:

SS_OpenForm("Human_P_T_frm", "[Event_Description] = '" & [Event_Description] & "'")

Without knowing the internals of your custom SS_OpenForm function I'm afraid we can't solve this.

Exactly.   We're taking shots in the dark here.

Jeff Coachman's use of the built in OpenForm should do the trick, however, with the assumption that your custom function is simply opening the form and not doing anything else.
