For people who use ODBC a lot this will seem really obvious.

I am using Drumbeat 2000 to develop a website that uses an Access database. However at the moment when I try to load my page I get this ODBC error

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e07'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access 97 Driver] Data type mismatch in criteria expression.

/Generator/media/IIS_Gen_3.0_Recordset.js, line 361

Does anyone know what this means and how I can fix it?



RE: I don't recognise this error

Well DataType mis-match means that it expects, say a string and you are passing a number.

So I would look at the SQL statemnt and make sure you have a single quote around your parameters.

Select * From YourTable Where Yourfield = '" & somevalue & "';"

Dates need a # before and after
Also look at the "Cxxx" functions to convert from one datatype to another.
CInt converts to Integer.
CDbl to Double
There are 8-10 of these for everything imagineable
