    Filter By Form Button (2000)

    Hi I have a filter by form button on the form. When I click this my other button which is set to apply filter is 'greyed out' any reason why? How can I go about enabling this?

    I would like to have it it so when the enter key is pressed it applies the filter but I believe this is not possible?
    Best Regards,

    Re: Filter By Form Button (2000)

    Access disables all controls except the data-bound ones when it displays filter-by-form. The user will have to click the Apply Filter button on the toolbar. You have no control over what happens as long as filter-by-form is open.

    The alternative would be to design your own filter-by-form, but that is a LOT of work, and very hard to get to work correctly in all circumstances.
