In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will teach you how to create a button that you can use to search a single field in your forms. Nice and simple for your users. We will also learn about the LIKE keyword and wildcard searches so you can find parts of a string.

Reis from St. Paul MN (a Silver Member) asks: The people who work in my office aren't computer experts. I'm trying to make my database as simple as possible for them to use. Do you have any tips for creating a real simple search or find button they can click on to find a record? All of those ribbon and right-click commands can be overwhelming, especially for non-computer people.


I'll show you how to search for RANGES of numeric or date values. Specify a start date and an end date, or a min and max value. Use the BETWEEN keyword to search accordingly.
