 type mismatch

Can someone tell me how to go about avoiding a 'type mismatch' error
anytime I try to save the contents of a textbox, which has been left
blank,  on a VB 6 form  to a field in an access table that has been
designated as anything other than a  type text.
I am able to save an 'ID' field which is typed as a long Integer and is
auto incremented, but if I designate a field as type Integer and leave
it blank I get a type mismatch error.
I was told that textboxes can only pass text so I tried using the CInt()
function on the data being passed from my form to my table but it did
nothing.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

 type mismatch

The only way to avoid this is to check for the value before writing to the database, then use some sort of default value.

something like this.

if txtAge = "" then txtAge = 0
' then write the data to the table.

If you know the Field is Numeric and the data comes from a Text Box,
use Rs.("Fieldname") = Val(Text1)

 type mismatch
 if you are saving records, you don't want to save to the autonumber
anyway since that value isn't changed. for a new record, the
autonumber is generated automatically. just omit the ID field from
either your update or insert statement and you should be fine.
