Multi-Field Search Form
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   4/27/2011 4:32:49 PM

One of the most requested questions I get asked is how to create a multi-field search form in Access. Well, I put together a short 10-minute free video for the ACCESS TIPS section on how to do this. This is only a TEENY, TINY preview of what's to come in the Search Form Seminar I'm preparing, which will be released after the SQL Seminar parts 2 and 3. There's SO MUCH more you can do with search forms in Access... but this will get you started.

Open Results in Form Link

I was watching your multi-field search form video, and at the end you mentioned opening another form after running the query. Once I get the query results, I need to be able to open a result. (As you can with a list form). How do I do that?

You may have ANSI 92 compatibility mode on. Go to File > Access Options > Object Designers > Query Design > and make sure the checkboxes are OFF under SQL Server Compatible Syntax (ANSI 92). Read More...

New Access Tip Search Form Link

I got the search form working really easily.  Thanks!  

My only problem is that I can only run the search once, then I have to close the query.  Once I close the query I can then run a new search from the form. Read More...
