    Smile How to use multiple values in text search?

    Hi,My ms access application is developed using MS Access 2010. I am trying to filter the row based on the multiple values in a column. But I am not getting any result.Ex: In my datasheet I have a column as "UserName" and it has 3 row as "ABC", "XYZ" and "LMN". I tried to search using Text Search and given ABC OR LMN for search but I am not getting any result.How can I use multiple values in Text search?ThanksSelvakumar R

    The OR operator should provide the results you are looking for. Can you post the code you are using?

    I am searching values from Datasheet view itself. In datasheet view - right click the cell - Text Filters - Equals - popup will appear and provide ABC OR LMN as per example.

    Do the 1st filter, then click the icon: ADVANCED FILTER/SORT. This 'edits' the filter.
    Then you can all ALL the rest of your filters here.
    (I would use queries myself.)

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
