    Question Report prompt for a list of values

    How do I create a prompt that will allow the user to enter a list of values to be used in the search criteria for a report? Example; I want all of the records for members whose Member Numbers are 009, 101 and 223. But, I want the user running the report to enter the Member Numbers. I don't want to hard-code the Member Numbers into the report query using the IN ("009","101","223") operator.

    use a table to enter the values, (like) tPicked.
    the query joins this table to the main data table and only those values will return.

    or you could even use a form for user to dbl-click the items:
