You have to reference the property name to set it.  And you probably have to enclose the string in quotes.

Try

me.txtzip.InputMask = " 00000;0"

Keep in mind that if you distribute as an .accde or .mde, you CANNOT make changes to forms or reports on the fly like this.

so an if/then statement won't work?

Form/Control properties fall into two categories.  Some can be set and saved without putting the form into design view and others cannot.  This property must be in the first category if it works in an .accde.
