    I am trying to create a query that has a simple criteria expression (i.e. > 5
    or >10). However, I want the number that the field should be less than (the 5
    or the 10) to be imputed by the user. Is there any way for me to run a query
    that prompts a message box and imputs the users response as the number in the
    criteria. Thanks

    Sure. It's called a "Parameter Query".

    Use

    > [Enter lower limit:]


    on the criteria line. The user will be prompted with whatever text you
    put in the brackets; whatever they type in response will be used as
    the query criterion.

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!
