    create a lookup on multiple fields prior to creating new record

    I'm new to access and need help on this. I created a crew database and want to find out if a new entry may already be there. (They change names, but may use the same tax id, email address, contact name, phone number or postal address)
    I want to create a form where I can enter 1 up to 5 of the previous elements and click a button to check if any of them are already present.
    Additionally, I'd like to save time by using what I already typed to create a new record if no duplicates are present.


    Thanks!

    For search utility, review http://allenbrowne.com/ser-62.html

    Otherwise, enter data into bound controls and use code behind each input control that does lookup for that single or multiple values. Code in the example can be adapted.
