i am using filter by form to view records by their machine code. if there are less than thousand records in the table, then in the filter drop down list, i can choose the machine code, and view all records matching that code

however, if the records in the table exceed thousand, then in the filter drop down list i only get null or not null. i can no longer choose the machine code.

it there any limit on records for filters. what should i do??

If the MachineCode is the main search criteria you could add a combobox based on a "SELECT DISTINCT MachineCode From YourTable;"
Thus you get all distinct codes and you can use the afterupdate event to place the selected value as a filter.

Idea?

Found in the Tools/Options window under the Edit/Find tab the field to set the number of displayed recordmax.
This can be enlarged to 32.000 but that's the real maximum.
