Problem assigning value in Sub

    I am trying to write write a procedure for a button which will open a
    report using the value of a field in the open form as the Where
    parameter for DoCmd.Openreport. The value of the field is assigned to
    a variable defined as an Integer, and the field to which I am assigning

    the variable is an Autonumber field. But when I press the button I get
    a message box prompting me for the value of the variable. What am I
    doing wrong??? Code included below:

    Private Sub Command45_Click()
    Dim OrderNum As Integer
    OrderNum = Forms!frmClientData!frmOrderSubform!OrderNo.Value


    'Debug.Print OrderNum
    DoCmd.OpenReport "rptReceipt", acViewPreview, ,
    "[OrderNo]=OrderNum"


    On Error GoTo Err_Command45_Click


    Exit_Command45_Click:
    Exit Sub

    The variable name needs to be outside the quotes. Otherwise it is not
    recognized as a variable name, but rather Access assumes it must be a field in
    the Report's RecordSource. When that field name cannot be found it then treats
    it as a parameter.

    DoCmd.OpenReport "rptReceipt", acViewPreview, ,"[OrderNo]=" & OrderNum

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
