    Concatenate Build String


    I have the below Module from years ago that I'm trying to morph for a new purpose. Below is the query. Attached is the error. I assume this is a syntax issue, but no clue as to what I'm missing. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Code:
    SELECT BuildStr("SELECT Temp_CA_PDF_Filename.PDF_Filename 
    FROM Temp_CA_PDF_Filename","|") AS PDF
    FROM Temp_CA_PDF_Filename;
    Code:
    Function BuildStr(pstrSQL As String, _
            Optional pstrDelim As String = "") _
            As String
    'Created by Duane Hookom, 2003
    'this code may be included in any application/mdb providing
    '   this statement is left intact
    'example
    'tblFamily with FamID as numeric primary key
    'tblFamMem with FamID, FirstName, DOB,...
    'return a comma separated list of FirstNames
    'for a FamID
    ' John, Mary, Susan
    'in a Query
    'SELECT FamID,
    'BuildStr("SELECT FirstName FROM tblFamMem
    ' WHERE FamID =" & [FamID]) as FirstNames
    'FROM tblFamily
    '
    
    
    '======For DAO uncomment next 4 lines=======
    '====== comment out ADO below =======
        'Dim db As DAO.Database
        'Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
        'Set db = CurrentDb
        'Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(pstrSQL)
    
    
    '======For ADO uncomment next two lines=====
    '====== comment out DAO above ======
        Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
        rs.Open pstrSQL, CurrentProject.Connection, _
        adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
        Dim strConcat As String 'build return string
        With rs
            If Not .EOF Then
                .MoveFirst
                Do While Not .EOF
                    strConcat = strConcat & _
                    .Fields(0) & pstrDelim
                    .MoveNext
                Loop
            End If
            .Close
        End With
        Set rs = Nothing
    '====== uncomment next line for DAO ========
        'Set db = Nothing
        If Len(strConcat) > 0 Then
            strConcat = Left(strConcat, _
            Len(strConcat) - Len(pstrDelim))
        End If
        BuildStr = strConcat
    End Function
    Thanks!

    I normally use DAO, but ADO would require the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects x.x Library be checked in Tools/References (I have 2.1 in my db).
