Hi Keith

Set the Filter property of the form in the AfterUpdate event of the combobox:

Me.Filter = "ProjectID = " & Me!ProjectCombo.Value & ""
Me.FilterOn = True

Emne: [AccessD] Form Filter with ComboBox

Hey guys,

I'm going so far back in my understanding (basically starting all over again) from Access97.  I've been pretty much only Excel programming for past 14 years.  I have a form, based on project records, with a combobox in the header area.  I want to filter my detail section to ONLY show records for the project I have input in the combobox.  Currently, it takes me to the first inastance of the input project (basically does a search instead of filter.)  But it does not filter for only that project.  I still have to cycle through the records.  I can't figure out what property I am messing up to not get a proper filter.  Sorry for such a basic question.
