Open Form to a specific record with composite key

I am attempting to open a form from another form with code. I would like to open the form to the appropriate record. The code I have written returns a "Type MisMatch" error. Both fields are text fields.

Here is the code:

StLinkCriteria = "trim([Project]) = '" & Me![CBOProj] & "'"
StLinkCriteria = (StLinkCriteria & " AND ") & "trim([LotNo]) = " & "'" & Me![LotInput] & "'"
Debug.Print StLinkCriteria

DoCmd.OpenForm acForm, "F_Maintain_Job_Options", , , StLinkCriteria

The debug print returns this in the immediate window:

trim([Project]) = 'RH Proj 1' AND trim([LotNo]) = '44444444'

I tried this with and without the trim function

first do a Debug > compile and correct any errors raised
do a compact and repair

then use this code

StLinkCriteria = "[Project] = '" & Me.CBOProj & "' AND [LotNo] ='" & Me.LotInput & "'"

DoCmd.OpenForm acForm, "F_Maintain_Job_Options", , , StLinkCriteria

if you are still getting a "Type Mismatch" then  upload a copy of the db

I will try this in the morning. I am curious about the compact and repair. is that specific to my issue, or just a good regular practice?

Are you certain that the bound column on me.cboProj is text and not numeric?  combo boxes frequently have two columns, an ID column which is hidden from view but is the bound column, and a text column

StLinkCriteria = "trim([Project]) = '" & Me![CBOProj] & "'" _
                         & " AND trim([LotNo]) = '" & Me![LotInput] & "'"
debug.print stLinkCriteria

What gets printed in the immediate window?

it is a good regular practice, specially if you have a weird thing happening like what you are having.
and the debug > compile is to ensure that your codes will compile
