    showdata (2002 sp3)

    I work with an Australia post file that lists the details for all Australian postcode zones. I often need to find either the name of all places with a specific postcode (some codes cover multiple localities) or postcode for specific localities. At the moment, I've found the quickest way to do this is to select Data | Form | Criteria. I thought it might be quicker to write a short program that would open a simple form to prompt for either a locality or postcode and then transfer that data to the inbuilt Dataform form to find the records. When I tried recording a macro to see how the form opened etc., to see how I could move the data across 'the cupboard was bare' iykwim

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Have you tried using Excels Auto Filter capability? It sound like it might do just what you need.
