    Unhappy Runtime error 3001 'Arguments are of the wrong type or out of acceptable range...

    Hey Guys

    I have a little problem.

    I want to filter the DataGrid in Visual Basic 6. I am using this code

    Code:
    Adodc1.Recordset.Filter = "columnname like '%" + Me.Txtsearch.Text + "%'"
    All went well. when I put the words "a" in the textbox then, the data that is the letter "a" will appear. But when the letter was removed from the textbox, appears an error like this

    Runtime error 3001 'Arguments are of the wrong type or out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another'
    Here is a screenshot of the error:

    I think you should check whether the textbox has any content.
    If there is no content you can not filter on '%%'
    Code:
    If Len(Txtsearch.Text) > 0 Then
      Adodc1.Recordset.Filter =  "columnname like '%" + Me.Txtsearch.Text + "%'"
    Else
      Adodc1.Recordset.Filter =  ""
    End If

    that's probably the better way to go. The reason the original code doesn't work is because it results in "like '%%' " ... which is invalid... '%' would be valid.
    Either way, you need to check to see if there is anything to filter on or not, and act accordingly, preferably as shown in post 2.
