   If you are trying to pass a text box or combo box value to a query (report based on a query), then you would use this syntax:

strLink = "[QueryFieldName] = " & Me.TextBoxOrComboBoxName

Please note the space between the = and the "

Also, make sure that if you are using a combo box from your form, that you have bound it to the right column. It should be bound to the same column as the QueryFieldName you are passing.

The space between the = and the " is not the issue. If you're trying to pass a string (i.e. text), then your statement should look like this (note the use of single quotes ' as delimiters):

strLink = "[QueryFieldName] = '" & Me.TextBoxOrComboBoxName & "'"

If the field holds a date then,

dtmLink = "[QueryFieldName] = #" & Me.TextBoxOrComboBoxName & "#"

And if the field holds a number (e.g. integer), you don't need anything

intLink = "[QueryFieldName] = " & Me.TextBoxOrComboBoxName
