    Multi search items in a form

    I'am a new user of access and thinking if it is possible to have an option for a multi search in a form in access. the scenario is this, I'am handling 20K+ records of our employees on my table and everytime i update my record i used v-look up and filter in excel manually. I'am using their passport no as the look up value to filter the records that i needed. because usually the emails comes in a bulk of records that i need to update. If there is like a copy and paste option in the access then will multi search will start.


    Please provide the codes that i needed. Thank you so much in advance

    I have approved your post so that members can read and reply.
    Welcome to the forum.

    For clarity, please give us a sample of your multi-search. A simple description of the logic involved (which record, what fields, update criteria..) would be helpful. If you could give an example with 1 or more of the records in your post, even better.
    An overview of the business involved can also help clarify the context.


    ?? What exactly does the Passport No. for Sr#5 means??
    Good luck.

    If you want to search for multiple passport numbers at one time, that does get complicated. Often involves selecting values in a multi-select listbox and VBA code builds filter criteria. Review http://allenbrowne.com/ser-50.html

    Another approach would involve putting the passport numbers you want to search for into a table then in query INNER JOIN that table to the data table you want to find records in. Only records that match will return in query.

    In SR# 5 in your graphic the passport # is divided with a "/". Does this indicate 2 passports?
    If so, you may want to adjust your tables so you can search easier for either/or passport #.
