rst.nomatch always returns TRUE

I had this question after viewing type mismatch on rst.findfirst.
On my app, I have a rst with a value and I am always getting a .nomatch situation in spite of the record being there (a match occurs)

van anyone help?

Compare it value with true or false..

IF _rst.NoMatch  = True
End IF

Adjust your filter:

strLocateSelected = "CodMilitante = '" & qryMMRfilterNew_rst!CodMilitante.Value & "' And refSelecaoMaster = '" & Me!frmfld_refSelecao.Value & "'"

You should not have to test for "=True" because the NoMatch property returns a boolean and should not need an "=True" test.

The first thing I would do is print out the criteria string you are using for the FindFirst method; do this right after setting your strLocateSelected value.

debug.print strLocateSelected

Then I would create a query that uses the query you are using for your recordset as its source and add the criteria that was printed in the previous step to the query, to determine whether it actually returns a record.

If not, then rs.nomatch is working properly.

Hi (Gustav)
Now I am getting a novel error:

in the Immediate window, use "?" instead of "debug.print"
Dale FyeOwner, Developing Solutions LLCCommented:
that particular error explicitly indicates that the [CodMilitante] field does not exist in the recordset that you are using the FindFirst method against.
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
Yes, that field is missing or misspelled, either in your recordset or in the query.
