Dim sql As String
Dim prov As String
Private WithEvents rs As ADODB.Recordset
Dim rCount As String
Dim cnt

Dim currentRR As String

Private Sub Form_Load()

Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
prov = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & App.Path & "\MAINDB2.mdb" & ";Persist Security Info=False"
conn.open (prov), , , 0
    '"<conn string>"
    ' ***** (step 1) *****
    Set rs = conn.execute("SELECT COUNT(Question) FROM QnE")
    rCount = rs(0)
    ' ***** (step 2) *****
    Set rs = conn.execute("SELECT Question FROM QnE")
    cnt = 1
    Dim RRs
    ReDim RRs(rCount)
    Do While Not rs.EOF
        RRs(cnt) = rs(0)
        cnt = cnt + 1
    ' ***** (step 3) *****
    currentRR = CLng(Rnd * rCount + 0.5)
    ID = RRs(currentRR)
    ' ***** (step 4) *****
    sql = "SELECT * FROM QnE WHERE Question=" & ID
    Set rs = conn.execute(sql)
    Label1.Caption = ID
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set conn = Nothing
End Sub

the error that comes out when i run it is this

Syntax error (missing operator) in querry expression

ive attach the file ive made pls check this sir

Since the variable 'ID' is a string variable you need to wrap the value with single quotes like the following.

sql = "SELECT * FROM QnE WHERE Question='" & ID &"'"
