How can I bring up records from a table, by using a query, that contain words that are entered into a textbox on a form? I can only get it to work if I enter in the specific word(s) into the field criteria in design view, which is not what I want.

Software/Hardware used:
Microsoft Access 2007

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

Instead of the specific words, use this notation in the field criteria:

<pre>[Forms]![YourFormName]![YourTextboxName]</pre>
