Query Criteria question

Query
I am designing a query. One of the fields in the query is "department". In my form there is a pull down menu with about 20 departments. In my query, I am making the department field have a criteria so that when you run the query, it asks for which department. However, if you do not type the department name exactly as in the list, you do not get any matches. Is there any way when running a query with a criteria to have it ask for a field but show a pull down menu when it asks...so that you don't necessarily have to know exactly how something is spelled?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would create a front end program with your pull down menus for dept selection. I would then output the selection to a file and use that file as an input file to link to the other file by the dept.
