    Help with Continuous Forms and RecordSource

    Hello all...got a question. Been hashing this out and cant get it to do what I want it to do. I have a Continuous Form that looks at a table and returns results based off a search box on a form. What I want to do is have a MsgBox pop up if no results are returned. Here is what I currently have:

    Code:
    Private Sub search_button_Click()
    
    If Me.filter_ID = "" Then
    MsgBox "Please Enter Merchant (DBA or Legal) or an ID to Search for."
    Exit Sub
    
    Else
    Me.text_search.Visible = True
    
    Me.filter_ID = SuperReplace(Me.filter_ID, " ")
    Me.filter_ID = "*" & Me.filter_ID & "*"
    
    Me.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM qryMERCHSearch WHERE DBASearch LIKE '" & Me.filter_ID & "'"
    Me.Requery
    
    Me.filter_ID = Replace(Me.filter_ID, "*", "")
    
    Me.ID.Visible = True
    Me.DBA.Visible = True
    Me.Merch.Visible = True
    Me.Email_Date.Visible = True
    Me.Line65.Visible = True
    Me.text_search.Visible = False
    
    End If
    End Sub




    I know i need to do something like a If IsNull or IF ____ = True with the Recordsource and Requery function, but i cannot get it to work correctly...

    any ideas???

    Thanks ahead of time!!!!!
