    INSERT INTO Run-time error 3075 Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression

    Hello all!



    I'm having a little trouble with an INSERT INTO and error 3075. My code is as follows (note: "txtQuantityShipped" is the only number):

    Code:
    Private Sub cmdRecordShipment_Click()
        
        CurrentDb.Execute "INSERT INTO tblShipments(Part, Description, OldLocation, NewLocation, QuantityShipped, WhoReceivedParts, WhoAuthorizedShipment, ShipmentDate) VALUES (cmbPart," & Me.txtDescription & "," & Me.txtOldLocation & ", cmbBuilding, " & Me.txtWRP & ", " & Me.txtWAS & ", '" & Me.txtQuantityShipped & "', " & Me.txtDate & ")"
        
    End Sub
    I'm then getting the 3075 error on my description value:
    Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression 'SWIVEL ASSY'
    . However, the actual value in "txtDescription" is "SWIVEL ASSY, REMOTE CONTROL UNIT".

    Is this an error in my code or is it an error with my value?

    Text data types require delimiters around the value. At its simplest an apostrophe. More here:
