Datatype mismatch problem...

I hope somebody can help me, I have a problem executing this line of
sql:

Dim rstur As New Recordset
Dim sql As String

sql = "SELECT * FROM tblpat WHERE [pturnumber]='" &
Me![pturnumber] & "'"
Set rstur = CurrentDb.OpenR ecordset(sql)

With rstur
If .RecordCount > 0 Then
' Would have some more code in here for duplicating
entry
ElseIf .RecordCount = 0 Then
' Some more code here for adding a new entry to form
End If

End With

I'm trying to create a duplicate set of three fields on a form - only
if the user selects OK on a msg box. This database is for a hospital
system where a patient number may have more than one exam. The
[pturnumber] field is set to be Text in the table and also on the
form. Yet each time I run the code, I get a Data-type mismatch error.
Any suggestions?? It's the smallest, most annoying thing holding the
WHOLE project up!!

Regards,

Sam

You don't indicate, but I'm guessing you're using either Access 2000 or
Access 2002.

By default, Access 2000 and Access 2002 use ADO. You're using DAO. From the
fact that the CurrentDb statement doesn't raise an error, you've obviously
added a reference to DAO in your application, but I suspect you didn't
remove the reference to ADO when you did that.

If you have both references, you'll find that you'll need to "disambigua te"
certain declarations, because objects with the same names exist in the 2
models. For example, to ensure that you get a DAO recordset, you'll need to
use Dim rstur as DAO.Recordset (to guarantee an ADO recordset, you'd use Dim
rstur As ADODB.Recordset )

The list of objects with the same names in the 2 models is Connection,
Error, Errors, Field, Fields, Parameter, Parameters, Property, Properties
and Recordset

(And I'd definitely lose the New in the declaration)

I am using Visual Studio .NET 2003 with SQL Server 2000. I am trying to insert the date and time into a SQL database by using hour(now). I am having a hard time trying to figure out which datatype to use in SQL to store this value. I have tried using datetime, char, nchar, text and nothing seems to work. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

I have a query that builds a date from a text field with the date imput as yyyymmdd in the query, so i have to piece it together in my expression as follows: exp: FormatNumber(DateDiff("d",DateSerial(Left(, 4),Left(Right(,4),2),Right(,2)),Now()))) if i don't use a criteria, it works fine. when i try to use the criteria <7 is when i get the error. It will show the correct records

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
