Multiple criteria for FindFirst.

What format do I use when specifying criteria for a FindFirst method that references multiple fields in the table?  All the examples I find use only one criterion, ex. "txtFName like 'Ba*'".   I need to check txtFName and txtSS# and BDate and DateEntered etc.  I thought of requerying, but a datacontrol is already in place; or can I build an SQL recordset from a datacontrol.

It's always faster to requery than findfirst, but if you wish to use findfirst, the criteria you specify resembles an SQL Where clause

For example

data1.recordset.findfirst "txtFName like 'BA*' and txtSS like '123*' and txtBDate like '12/31/1998'"
