Category NetMailBot Mail Merge & Using a Database 
Question/Issue I'm using Microsoft Access for my database, and I'm getting an error: "data type mismatch in criteria expression". What is the problem? 
Answer/Solution This might have something to do with your database query. Access query values should be encapsulated in pound signs, for example:

-dbquery "Select email FROM customers WHERE purchase_date = #10/7/2002#"

Pound signs are the only thing that should encapsulate a query for Access.
