    Theory I hope to work with recordset and filtering another recordset

    I have a form with a list of schools however I want to filter any schools that have bookings for next year away from this list.



    I thought of using recordset by making an sql string, list all the bookings with criteria and then produce a list of schools that have those bookings.

    from that list I would then collect the IDs and use that to...

    filter any of the schools that match those IDs out of the list.

    Then after it is filtered I would go through that recordset and email each record. Since the schools that had bookings have been filtered out - they wouldn't be emailed.

    Is this possible, what functions/rules would have I have to learn and use?

    My first thought is to create a query that returned schools with bookings for the next year, then use the unmatched query wizard to compare that with the table with all schools. That should return the desired schools. Base your email recordset on that query.

    Hey that works

    only now I have to figure out how to customize the first query, maybe make a form that replaces the query with the new criteria (the schools I want to exclude).

    Don't see the need for a form based on your description, but you know the app better than I.
