Hello All.  I need to loop thru  "tbl_Compiled_List_Working", get a Term.  Then find that Term in "tbl_Appendix_A_Working".
Every thing works fine until it tries to do the actual Search.

I get a "runtime error 3421 data type conversion error"

Both are "Short Text" in the tables.

Dim rsttblCompiledListWorking As Recordset
Dim rsttlAppendixAWorking As Recordset
Dim strtxtTermCLW As String
Dim strtxtDefinitionCLW As String

Dim db As Database

Set db = CurrentDb
Set rsttblCompiledListWorking = db.OpenRecordset("tbl_Compiled_List_Working", DB_OPEN_DYNASET)
Set rsttblAppendixAWorking = db.OpenRecordset("tbl_Appendix_A_Working", DB_OPEN_DYNASET)

inttblCompiledListWorking = rsttblCompiledListWorking.RecordCount

intCount = 0

If inttblCompiledListWorking > 0 Then
    Do Until rsttblCompiledListWorking.EOF = True
        strTermCLW = rsttblCompiledListWorking!txt_Term_CLW

        rsttblAppendixAWorking.OpenRecordset "Select * From tbl_Appendix_A_Working Where tbl_Appendix_A_Working.txt_Term_AAW = '" & strTermCLW & "'"
         Other code stuff
End If
