Parameter Query and WildCards

    I have created a (below) Parameter Query. I would like to change this query
    so that I get results as follows:

    1. I want my Query not to be limited to Authors names - but include text in
    all fields. This would basically be a free-text search. In the past I have
    created such a parameter using a combination of wildcards. Unfortunately,
    that was years ago and has since become a fuzzy memory.

    2. I want the results to be multiple. I have a multi-page report to apply to
    this query. Right now, I only get one result and there are several records
    with identical information in the author field.

    SELECT Index_Author.Author AS Srch_Author_Author, Catalog.accession_no,
    Catalog.abstract, Catalog.subjects, Catalog.[journal title], Catalog.author
    AS Catalog_author, Catalog.title, Catalog.volume_issue, Catalog.publisher,
    Catalog.publisher_location, Catalog.pages, Catalog.date, Catalog.isbn,
    Catalog.issn, Catalog.oclc, Catalog.owned, Catalog.holdings,
    Catalog.language, Catalog.notes, Catalog.acquisition_method
    FROM [Catalog] INNER JOIN Index_Author ON Catalog.author = Index_Author.Author
    WHERE (((Index_Author.Author)=[Enter Author Name:]));

    Please advise - Thank you,

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!
