    Query criteria based on multi select list box?

    Hello All,

    I have found many valuable resources here and finally need to post my question. I'm a newbie, but making my way slowly.

    I have an unbound form, with a series of unbound combo boxes. These provide the criteria to a query, which is displayed in the sub-form. I use command button to requery the sub-form with the items selected in each combobox.

    The one thing I need though, is to have multiple selections from a list box on the form, to be passed to the same query, to further filter the results. In searching, I saw that this needs to be done through VBA somehow. Unfortunately this is beyond my ability. Could anyone suggest how to accomplish this?

    Macros can call VBA functions (not subs).

    Are you using a dynamic parameterized query as the form RecordSource? I've never used that approach to filter form.

    I suppose dynamic parameterized query and code to set Filter property will work together. Never tried.

    I also don't use macros, only VBA.

    I use VBA to construct filter criteria. Review the link at the very bottom of Allen's tutorial.
