hi

i have querys named:

jan 01
feb 01
mar 01....  ranging all the way to dec 04

I have created a table called "Month (Stats)", with one field called "Month".
In this field i have all the same names as my querys jan 01, feb 02, mar 03, apr 04 etc....

I have also created a form with a combo box that lists all the options from this table.

Is it possible to run the correct query that corrosponds with the same month from this combo box.

also is it possible to have a command button next to this combo box that will open the selected query.

if this isnt clear enough im, sorry, but you guys will probably know what im on about.


Cheers!

You can, by doing this:
DoCmd.OpenQuery Me!MeComboBox

in the OnClick event of the command buttoon. This will run the query with the same name as whatever the combo box shows.

I wouldn't recommend though that you do it this way - you'd be better off designing just one query that returns data according to the month you select (it can do this by taking a criteria from the combo box) and just run that one query. That way, you can, for example, create one report that does everything you need rather than designing one report per query (or keep having to change report's record source).

set the row source of your combo box to

Select Distinct [Month] From [Month (stats)]

On the after update of the combo box
Private Sub ComboName_AfterUpdate()
Dim StrQuery as String
strQuery=Me.ComboName.Value
End Sub

on the click of the command button

Private Sub commandbutton_Click()
docmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.OpenQuery "" & strQuery &""

docmd.SetWarnings True

End Sub
