    Form text search query command

    Dear All,



    Query search command in form text search won't give result.While inputing three character in employee name field and then clicking on search query it won't give the result. i can filter through combo box, but i want an alternative solution by serach query command.
    i want to enter first three character of the name in text box field.
    Please see attached DB and form:
    Note: The clear command button work fine but search query won't give result.

    thanks,
    aligahk06

    usual way would be something like

    me.filter="empname like '" & txtsearch & "*'"
    me.filteron=true

    I don't use macro's so cannot comment on them. Looks like you might be mixing up filtering (which reduces the list of records which is the code I provided) and finding - which doesn't reduce the list but just navigates to the first record which meets the criteria

    not sure why you need the searchbox since the user can type 3 characters into the combo and then select from there - easier if your sorted the rowsource

    SELECT [TelephoneList].[EmpName] FROM TelephoneList ORDER BY [EmpName];

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