    An advanced search form with multiple combo boxes

    So, I have an advanced form with 4 combo boxes and 1 field for a date.

    In this form I'd like to be able to choose an option from one or more comboboxes and create a report of all of the records matching those criteria.



    Is there a way to do this?

    Yes. You could use vba and a series of ifs (or select case) to determine what the user has selected, then create sql to search for the requested information.
    You may find some examples at Datapig

    I was following them for a little while but I don't think that's what I wanted.

    Is there a way to use Advanced Filters or maybe a place I could get the VBA code for the advanced form?

    Your options are a parameterized query as demonstrated by DataPig or a lot of VBA code as demonstrated by http://www.allenbrowne.com/ser-62.html

    Thanks June. I actually found that already and I gave it a test. I wasn't so sure how I would implement it onto my DB but I will give it a try and tweak the code to my needs.

    Thanks again.

    Wow!

    I did it! After 4 hours of working I got it to produce correct results from my criteria.

    Now I need it to produce those results into a report. Any suggestions?

    EDIT: Nevermind I got it!

    Problem solved!
