Your strSql is incorrect. Use the second strSql which is correct.

strSQL = "SELECT * ATM WHERE pincode = '" & pinenter.Text & "'"

= Incorrect

strSQL = " SELECT * FROM ATM WHERE pincode =" & "'" & pinenter.Text & "'"

= correct

Hi dorothy

If pincode is a numeric field in your database then you should probably use

strSQL = " SELECT * FROM ATM WHERE pincode = " & pinenter.Text

If it is a text field, then use

strSQL = " SELECT * FROM ATM WHERE pincode = '" & pinenter.Text & "'"

If you still get the same error, there's probably something wrong with field/table names. ALso, it might help to check pinenter.text before you create strSQL - to make sure it's in the right format - probably "1234" or similar.

No, data type mismatch is probably because you are trying to save a string to a integer field. In other words, in your table the field "Balance" is set to only accept numbers and not any text. Confirm that only a number is returned from form 3/balance.
