Criteria mismatch in access sql

Last Modified: 2016-03-21
I have a query that works in the query grid but I am having trouble making it work as a dao.recordset: assistance would be appreciated.

access says error 3464 data type mismatch


'get Capbuilds current recordcount
Set RstBuildsMinusZero = db.OpenRecordset("SELECT Count(CapBuilds.Sequence) AS CountOfSequence, CapBuilds.Sequence" _
& " FROM CapBuilds" _
& " GROUP BY CapBuilds.Sequence" _
& " HAVING (((CapBuilds.Sequence) = '" & MaxSequence & "'))" _
& " ORDER BY CapBuilds.Sequence DESC;")

With RstBuildsMinusZero
    CapBuildsMinusZero = .Fields("CountOfSequence").Value
End With

Open in new window

here is the actual sql from the querygrid

SELECT Count(CapBuilds.Sequence) AS CountOfSequence, CapBuilds.Sequence
FROM CapBuilds
GROUP BY CapBuilds.Sequence
HAVING (((CapBuilds.Sequence)=4))
ORDER BY CapBuilds.Sequence DESC;
