If I am understanding correctly you are looking to write a stored procedure to search a table based on the values that the user enters into the 5 controls on the form...

Your stored procedure should have 5 parameters (1 for each value) for each value that is optional you declare that the default for the value is NULL. Then where you do the search you select from the table where the values match the ones given by the user, unless the value is NULL.  The procedure would look something like this (I'm only using 2 parameters but you get the idea).

CREATE PROC myProc
  @param1 paramtype,
  @param2 paramtype = NULL
AS
  Select * from myTable where field1=@param1 and ((param2 is NULL) or (field2=@param2))

The results should be what you are looking for.
