    VBA Dlookup getting a syntax error

    I have the following VBA code in a Form_Current Procedure (on a subform nested within another subform on a main form)

    Private Sub Form_Current()
    strFilter = "ServiceID = " & Me!cboServiceID
    Me!cboBusinessNeedID = DLookup("BusinessNeedID", "Service", strFilter)


    End Sub
    When I open the main form, I get the following error:
    Run-time error '3075':

    Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression 'ServiceID = '.
    Here's the crazy part...when I click End in the dialog box, and it goes away and I navigate to the subform, the code did exactly what I needed it to do! Should I just set warnings to false and move on, or is there something to fix here?

    EDIT: Turning off warnings didn't help...

    your error implies Me!cboServiceID is null

    suggest change your code to

    Code:
    if not isnull(Me!cboServiceID) then
        strFilter = "ServiceID = " & Me!cboServiceID
        Me!cboBusinessNeedID = DLookup("BusinessNeedID", "Service", strFilter)
    end if


    other possibility is you have a typo in Me!cboServiceID - better to use me. rather than me!. The me! late binds the control so any errors will not be seen until the code is executed whereas Me. will pick up errors when you compile your code.
