    Hi I have a table of data (QA)

    I then have a form that was auto created when the table was created for
    entering/editing data (INPUTFORM)

    To help the user, I have a macro button that will launch the form at the
    'Add record' level.

    What I would like to do is have a macro button where the user can eneter 1
    bit of data that searchs column (WFI) and then opens the form at that
    relevant record.

    I'm struggling with this, any help appreciated.

    Thanks.

    in the OpenForm action of your macro, you can use the WHERE CONDITION
    argument to select the specific record you want returned in the form as it
    opens. read up on the OpenForm action and its' arguments in Access Help, to
    understand how it works. note that using this method will return only the
    record(s) that meet the condition, not all of the records in the form's
    underlying table or query.

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!
