.FindFirst - 3077 Syntax error (missing operator) in expression

.FindFirst - 3077 Syntax error (missing operator) in expression

(OP)
Could someone please tell me what is wrong with the following code.

With rstDestination
.FindFirst "USERNAME = " & strUserName

The recordset is opened as a dynaset, the variable strUserName is obtained from a lookup in a different table and the correct value does show up here when the mouse pointer is over it.

Any help would be appreciated

RE: .FindFirst - 3077 Syntax error (missing operator) in expression

could you try

.FindFirst "USERNAME='" & strUserName & "'"

It has the effect of enclosing the variable strUserName in singles quotes - I'm just guessing from the way other things work to be honest.

Thanks Mike, that did it.
I did not see that anywhere in the docs I saw.

RE: .FindFirst - 3077 Syntax error (missing operator) in expression

I vaguely remember it biting me as well. The problem is that the examples in the documentation all use numbers - so you don't need the single quotes.
