    Hi there,

    I'm very new to this and just need to write something quickly. I am
    producing a query which garbs a value from a form.

    I have the field of TCT passed from the form e.g. [Forms]![PS
    Distribution Report Criterion]![Courier]

    However with the result i would like to find all records that contain
    the word TCT.

    I've tried using LIKE "*[Forms]![PS Distribution Report
    Criterion]![Courier]*" however that does not work.

    Is there a way of making this work

    Regards,

    Ben

    Ben,

    It's the syntax... as is, "*[Forms]![PS Distribution Report
    Criterion]![Courier]*" is recognized as a text string (because it is
    enclosed in quotes, rather than as an object reference, which is what
    you need. Try this:

    LIKE "* " & [Forms]![PS Distribution Report
    Criterion]![Courier] & "*"

    (all in one line, in case it gets wrapped in your newsreader).

    PS: not a good idea to post your e-mail undisguised, you're making
    spammers' day!

    HTH,
    Nikos
     
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!
