    I am trying to make a query with a sort by month. I would just like to type
    a month in and have it give me all the data associated with it. What would
    my formula be?

    In the query field for your date field put something like

    TheMonth: Month([YourDateFieldName])

    I'm assuming that you have a date/time field in the table and not just a
    Month field with entries like 'June'.

    In the criteria put:
    [Enter the number of the month]

    Run the query and when prompted, put in 7 for July.

    Problem: The month function used like above will give you all the July's
    from any year! If you want to narrow things down to both a month and year,
    you'll need to add another column and use the Year function too.

    You don't need a formula.
    Create a Parameter Query using the normal GUI.
    Test it manually first.
    Call the query from a form using imput from one of the form's fields as the
    parameter for the Query.

    The Access Help probably explains the use of Parameter Querys.
