Hi, pohkheng1!

Assume, Text1 contains "xxxxx" and Text4 contains "yyyyy". The final SQL string, that will pass to DBMS should be:
---------
SELECT * FROM Makpel WHERE nama = "xxxxx" OR namabapa = "yyyyy" ORDER BY nama;
---------

To create this SQL use following code:

sSql = "SELECT * FROM Makpel" & _
       " WHERE nama = " & _     'space before WHERE
       Chr(34) & Text1.Text & Chr(34) & _
       " OR namabapa = " & _    'space before OR
       Chr(34) & Text4.Text & Chr(34) & _
       " ORDER BY nama;"        'space before ORDER

Cheers,
Dedushka

Correction:

Sql = "SELECT * FROM Makpel" & _
           "WHERE nama = '" & & CStr(Text1.Text) & "' &" _
           "OR namabapa = '" & & CStr(Text4.Text) &"' " & _
           "ORDER BY nama"

the key is
"WHERE NNNN = " & CStr(text1.text) & "

Hi again,
your Field nama or namabapa as not spell correct or CASE sensitive.

OR your TABLE is not spell correctly: is it Makpel?


The help on this error say:
This parameter query requires the specified number of parameters, which you didn't supply. Provide the expected number of parameters, and run the query again.
In some cases, this message is generated when unknown field names or expressions are interpreted as query parameters. Be sure to enclose field names containing spaces or punctuation with square brackets [ ].  

So check your database for the correct table AND field names!

pohkheng1,
remove comments from code and use it, i.e.:
sSql = "SELECT * FROM Makpel" & _
       " WHERE nama = " & _
       Chr(34) & Text1.Text & Chr(34) & _
       " OR namabapa = " & _
       Chr(34) & Text4.Text & Chr(34) & _
       " ORDER BY nama;"

Good luck,
Dedushka
