    Type mismatch error 13

    Hi everyone!

    I get this error 13 type mismatch, when running the following code:

    Code:
    Private Sub Report_Load()
    Dim con As Integer
    Dim noc1 As Integer
    con = Forms("PaperWork").Worker
    noc1 = DLookup("IDman", "Managers", "[IDman]=1")
    If con = noc1 Then
    Me.Text17 = "AGREE," & vbCrLf & "John Brown"
    End If
    End Sub
    "Worker" field is a combo box with multiple values allowed. I think this causes the problem.


    Any help, please?
    Thx!

    13 is data mismatch.
    youre trying to put a string value into an integer variable.
    either CON or NOC1, my bet is NOC1 because DLookup("IDman", "Managers", "[IDman]=1") may not return an integers.
    if you get a NULL or a string, it will fail.

    dim NOC1 as variant, this way it will accept ANY reply.

    and why are you bothering to lookup a value you already know in the first place?

    DLookup("IDman", "Managers", "[IDman]=1")

    It can only return 1, or null if it doesn't exist

    Thx guys for your help!

    Ajax, you are totally right.
    Ranman, I've tried what you said, but for sure the problem is the type (multiple values allowed) of the field "Worker". I've changed the field intro one value only allowed and it works. But I need it to be with multiple values.

    So, the code after your advice would be:

    Code:
    Private Sub Report_Load()
    Dim con As Variant
    con = Forms("PaperWork").Worker
    If con = 1 Then
    Me.Text17 = "AGREE," & vbCrLf & "John Brown"
    End If
    End Sub
    but still doesn't work.

    You don't need the "con" any more, you can put the IF in front of the Forms field. Put a stop point on the If statement and see what the value is of Worker. Check the first column of Worker, is it defined as a number?

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
