    on a startup form I want to create a button that will let you choose from a
    drop down list and when you click on that choice, it will run the query?

    I have a list of departments (15), Information & Techonology, Administrative
    Services - Fiscal (example) (long names) and if I have a parmeter set up to
    Enter the name and part of it is left out or misspelled it will not run. I
    just want the user to click on a drop down arrow and choose the department
    and then the query will run. Thanks

    Add a combo box to your form that will show the Department field.
    Make sure the Combo Box Bound Column is the
    same DataType as the Department field.

    Add a command button.

    Code the button's Click event:
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "QueryName"
    DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name

    Name this form "ParamForm"

    Code the Query Department field criteria line:
    forms!ParamForm!ComboBoxName

    Open the form.
    Find the Department in the combo box.
    Click the command button.

    The query will display just those records selected.
    The Form will close.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
