Code for searching 2 different field criteria

Hi. Am trying to search to seperate Access fields from VB but the code I am attempting:

Foo5 = Combo1.Text
Data1.RecordSource = "Select * from Details1 where region = '" & Foo5 & "' and reps ='1'"
        Data1.Recordset.MoveFirst
        Data1.Refresh
        Combo1.Text = "select"

Does the search have to be done using two seperate lines or perhaps my code gramatics is wrong.

Thanks

U can do search after assigning the recordsource by using data1.recordset.findfirst method.if any record matches for the given criteria then data1.recordset.nomatch will become false else true.

I have the search working ok. Recordsource has been assigned etc. Just need the code for a dual search where 2 Access fields are queried.

recordsource = "select * from deatails1 where region="my variable"

What else do I need to include in this code? Do I have to search the other field on a different line of code or the same one?

Try removing the MoveFirst (there is no need for that line there)!

Also, before the Refresh, what do you see if you add this:
msgbox Data1.RecordSource

Have you tried to run this query into Access?

You better keep it in VB! You need to pass parameters to your region field.

But have you tried to run your query exactly like it appears into the message box directly from Access?
