    Setting parameters to open a form (access 2003)

    Probably really simple but how do you open a form by selecting parameters (with the ability to set more than one). e.g. in an address book form - select all ARCHITECTS based in LONDON? Would like to know how to set parameter by either combo box or typing in value if possible.

    Thank you.

    You can put unbound combo boxes on the address book form itself, or you can use a separate form with combo boxes and open the address book form from there.

    <post#=301130>post 301130</post#> contains code that shows how to assemble a filter string from the items selected in combo boxes. It is used to search for a record there, but it can easily be adapted to filter records.

    Post back if you need more assistance.
