    That query code helped me with a search button I want to impliment on my
    database so users don't have to revisit the switchboard to launch the search.

    In the form with the text box that is the input to the query, and the button
    that launches the query the only other thing in the test form is a subform
    that is supposed to be based on the query (I used the subform wizard and told
    it to use the query).
    However the query results pop up in another window instead of the subform.

    I need to redirect the output of the query to the subform
