Experts, I am trying to open a form to 2 criteria.  It seemed to work just fine with one criteria but there seems to be an error in the second criteria in this section:   & "[Timing]= '" & Me!txtTiming & "'"

    DoCmd.OpenForm "frmCovenantHistory", acFormDS, , "[Description]= '" & Me!txtDescription & "'" & "[Timing]= '" & Me!txtTiming & "'"


Please let me know how to open a form with 2 criteria.  This is not the preferred way to open the form but I am working with raw data from an import and there is no ID.  

thank you

You need to put some kind of joining command between the two, such as AND:

 DoCmd.OpenForm "frmCovenantHistory", acFormDS, , "[Description]= '" & Me!txtDescription & "' AND " & "[Timing]= '" & Me!txtTiming & "'"

You are missing a logical operator such as AND or OR.  In your case, you probably want AND so that the returned records meet both criteria.

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmCovenantHistory", acFormDS, , "[Description]= '" & Me!txtDescription & "' AND [Timing]= '" & Me!txtTiming & "'"
