I want to open a table to specific records using a drop down box on the form

I have a drop down box on a form that you select a client then I want to push a button that garbs those records in a table and displays them for editing.
The code im using is  

dim stLinkCriteria as string
stLinkCriteria = "[Client Name]=" & "'" & Me![SingleAcctName] & "'"
docmd.opentable "Structure", , stLinkCriteria

and Im getting a type mismatch

stLinkCriteria looks like this "[Client Name]='Home Depot'"
what am i doing wrong?

1. the OpenTable method does not support a where argument.
2. Never under any condition should users be presented with a raw table or query to update.  Always use a form.  Tables and queries do not have any event processing so there is no way for you to have any control over the data they enter.
3. If the user wants to edit in something that looks like a table, use a form in Data Sheet view.  When you use a DS form, it is generally best to make it a subform rather than a main form because a DS form does not support buttons or have a header or footer.  If you want to know how to make the subform work with criteria, post back.
