hello, i am currently trying to set up a search of a database on multiple fields. how would i go about
doing this without using any data from the database. example setting up a minimum and maximimum
price amount where i have a field called price, want to search with parameters, say they are looking
for a 55,000.00 house, i want to search for all houses between the range of 45,000.00 and
65,000.00. is there an easy way of doing all that i want.

I am assuming a DAO or a ODBC database...

In DAO (probably ODBC as well) you can either create a CDaoQueryDef or set the m_strFilter parameter of a CDaoRecordset.

Setting the m_strFilter parameter...

m_strFilter.Format( "WHERE [Price Range] IS BETWEEN %d and %d", iLowPrice, iHighPrice );

and then a CDaoRecordset::Requery( )

should do the trick for you.  You can do a CDaoQueryDef by adding it to your database (via Access) and allowing the low and high prices to be parameters (look it up in a TechNote, it's pretty well laid out)
