Read How to filter a listbox through partial text in a by Stephen K @ Thu 3/8
If anyone is reading this and went through all hell to get this done, heres what to do:

1. Make a continuous form, and set it to whatever query needed
2. Place a textbox in the header
3. Create a button and exit the wizard. Make this button the default button in the property sheet and go to the other tab, there you will see default, select yes
4. Behind this button, on the property sheet, go to the Event tab
5. You'll see on the click option. click the "..." button to the end. it appears when the mouse hovers over the field
6. Go to macro builder
7. If youre using access 2007 like me, it looks nothing like access 2010 so i was tearing my hair out. Under the action column, click the drop down box, select ApplyFilter
8. Now here is where you will have the change the parameters to match your database. In the "where condition" field, enter:

[ItemNumber] Like "*" & [Forms]![ProductListF]![RegisterSearchBar] & "*" Or [ItemDescription] Like "*" & [Forms]![ProductListF]![RegisterSearchBar] & "*"

Item Number and ItemDescription are the two fields i am typing in partial text to search for records.

ProductListF is the form this is happening in.

Now save all of that and exit macro builder. Save the form, open and close.... Thank me later...

Thank you sir. I was able to use the ApplyFilter action in the macrobuilder to get this done. I applied this macro to the search button and it works like a charm. It took me literally 2 months to figure this out. If anyone needs help, ill be glad to help out.

Hi guys, just as the subject states. I have a list of products in my table and i want to create a form that will allow me to search through my table by entering keywords into a textbox and the listbox shows me records that match whats in that textbox. What would be even more helpful is if someone can direct me to the lesson that Richard conducted which explains this entire process.
Thanks as always!
