    Question How to make a button show the result of a query in a subform?

    How to make a query be displayed in a subform (in datasheet mode) with the criteria inserted in a text box (on the main form), after pressing a command button to run it?

    You want a multi-value field? I NEVER use multi-value fields but that's what your table looks like.

    Hello June7, yes this is the case of a multi-value field and you're right, they suck. So my strategy is to first convert the text attributes into numerical attributes and then split them in records, because it's easier to deal with numbers than strings.

    I will re-write the thread to be more specific. Thanks for helping!

    Build a query that expands the multi-value field to separate records, as demonstrated in the referenced link. If you have a table that associates the string values with number ID, join that table to the expanded query. Can then run UPDATE or MAKE TABLE actions.
