If I understand you correctly,  using one query you'd like to be able to select all reports or optionally only those reports from a selected division.  Here's the code:

SELECT DISTINCT DailyReport.divisioin
FROM DailyReport
WHERE (((DailyReport. divisioin) Like [Forms]![Search Form]![comboboxsubdivision] & *));

If comboboxsubdivision = "" then, the query selects all records.  Otherwise, it only selects one division's records.
