Hi Richard,

Your courses online are very helpful. I hope you will continue updating your course and adding more design like student database. How do you start the CustomerList Box so it won't show the customers in the box.? Read More...

Spaces in Search As You Type Upload Images   Link

Hello Richard, I have this working I believe with a macro to open the selected customer as well, however I'm unable to add spaces into the text field. I may be missing the obvious but how can I add spaces so I can do like Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale etc without just searching the last word?

Yeah, that's a tricky one. I'll have to think about it. The way I have the code written (if memory serves, it has been 2 years since I recorded that) every time you press a key the string gets "trimmed" so the trailing space would be removed. All I can think of is you'd need to keep a second hidden text box or memory variable with the actual value you type in that doesn't get trimmed.

I was able to accomplish the spaces by:
1.Make list box. Go to properties, select row source "...", Expr:1 [field 1] & [field 2]
2.Make a SearchBox. Go to properties and set the On Change with Code builder type DoCmd.Requery "List Box"
3.Like "*"& [Forms]![Form Name]![SearchBox].[Text] &"*"   The .Text will select the text inside of the searchbox

I am also wondering how to make this happen with VBA, can't wait for the update. Thanks!
