Find Dialog Problems

    I've had several complaints from my database users about the Find Dialog.
    They frequently searcg for particular records. After awhile, the search will
    not return any results, even though the name or number is in the table. (I've
    already looked for the obvious "whole field" or formatting explanations.)
    They usually have to shut down the form and often the entire database. I've
    had this happen to me as well. Does anyone have any idea what might be going
    on? Thanks

    What criteria are you using to search ? If you are looking for a name then
    you could create an unbound box on your form and use AfterUpdate . Something
    like this

    Private Sub NameOfBox_AfterUpdate()
    Dim rs As Object

    Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
    rs.FindFirst "[NameField] = " & Str(Me![NameOfBox])
    Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
    End Sub


    This would take you to record of NameField.

    Hope this helps

    I tried this. We are searching by name, but I get a type mismatch error.
    Also, if I can clear that up, would I be able to add a wild card so they
    wouldn't have to type in the full name (they can be pretty lengthy).
    Thanks for your help!

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!
