datatype error in recordset statement

Hi guys,
New to Access, so please be kind
The following has been working just fine. Now I get a 'Type Mismatch' error
#13 in the highlighted line. Do not understand this.

Public Sub NewDataAddition(strNewData As String, strTable As String)

Dim db As Database
Dim rec As Recordset ' Adds new data to Casinos and Games tables

Set db = CurrentDb()
Set rec = db.OpenRecordset(strTable) ' this is the offending line

rec.MoveFirst
Do While Not rec.EOF
If rec.Fields(0) <> strNewData Then
rec.MoveNext
Else
rec.Close
Exit Sub
End If
Loop
rec.AddNew
rec.Fields(0) = strNewData
rec.Update
rec.Close

End Sub

The DAO and ADO libraries both have a Recordset object, so change the 2nd
line to:
Dim rec As DAO.Recordset

Thank you very much Allen. Having two libraries has been confusing for at
times. Your solurion worked just fine.

Excellent.

BTW, if you are not using the ADO library, you can drop it from your
project. Open a code window, choose References on the Tools menu, and
uncheck the box beside the Ms ActiveX library.

That's the 2nd thing I do whenever I create a new database (immediately
after turning Name AutoCorrect off.)
