    Question Data type mismatch in criteria expression

    Hi,



    I have the following problem:
    I have a button in a form that suppose to open another form, coping a number and pasting in the new form field.
    It works perfectly, but only one time. If the new form have data on it, it doesnt work. The error is: Data type mismatch in criteria expression

    Here is the code of the button:

    Code:
    Private Sub AbrirDadosdosCondutores_Click()
    
    On Error GoTo Err_AbrirDadosdosCondutores_Click
    
    	Dim stDocName As String
    	Dim strCriteria As String
    
    strCriteria = "[N do Seguro] = """ & Me.[N do Seguro] & """"
    
    DoCmd.OpenForm "Dados dos Condutores", _
    	WhereCondition:=strCriteria, _
    	WindowMode:=acDialog, _
    	OpenArgs:=(Me.[N do Seguro])
    
    Exit_AbrirDadosdosCondutores_Click:
    	Exit Sub
    	
    Err_AbrirDadosdosCondutores_Click:
    	MsgBox Err.Description
    	Resume Exit_AbrirDadosdosCondutores_Click
       
    End Sub
    I think the code should add something that says: open in a new record. Probably is trying to open the form, and the form opens showing the first record. As Access is unable to change the primary key, since it has a relationship with other tables, so I get the error.

    How can I make the button open a form in a new record?

    If that field is numeric you have the wrong syntax:
