    My form has a drop-down list with the names of various Events. When I click
    the desired Event I trigger an OnClick event that is suppose to open the
    EventForm with information contined in the record "Event" Here's my
    subroutine. The problem is "Me![EventBox]" When I click the an item in the
    EventBox, e.g. "Series2005" I get a small dialog box that says: "Enter
    Parameter Value" and it shows "Series2005" with two buttons and a place to
    type in some parameter.

    With what should I replace "Me![EventBox]"?

    Private Sub EventBox_Click()
    On Error GoTo Err_EventBtn_Click

    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "EventForm"
    stLinkCriteria = "[Events.Event]=" & Me![EventBox]
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

    Exit_EventBtn_Click:
    Exit Sub

    Err_EventBtn_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_EventBtn_Click

    End Sub

    If Event is a Textfield you need the syntactically required
    quotemarks. Try

    stLinkCriteria = "[Events].[Event]='" & Me![EventBox] & "'"

    If the event might contain an apostrophe (e.g.if there were an event
    named "Mairi's Wedding") use doublequotes; you need to double the
    doublequote within the doublequote delimited string to get a single
    doublequote:

    stLinkCriteria = "[Events.Event]=""" & Me![EventBox] & """"
