Zero-Code Multi-Field Search in Access, Part 2
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you how to make a simple search form where you can search multiple fields. In Part 2 we'll learn how to use a little trick with Null Math to do an OR search and ignore any empty text boxes as parameters.
Members, I haven't forgotten about you. We're going to do something a little bit more advanced. We're going to add a relevancy score to each hit, and then we'll sort it based on relevancy. So, for example, if you're doing an OR search and you want to show all the records that meet any of the three criteria, we'll add a score—one, two, or three—with the highest score being the ones that match all three criteria. So that'll be pretty cool.
