Dear Experts:

I have a form name "customers", it have CusotmerID, CustomerName, BillingAddress ...
When I add a search function, it only search for CusotmerID, that's the primer key.
How can I change it to search other tables in the form? like search for CustomerName or Address?

Thank you.

Please describe how you set up your search function.

>like search for CustomerName or Address?
Give Access's built-in search feature a try ---
Right click on the field you want to search in and select "filter For"
Specify your criteria in the text box. You can type your criteria exactly, or use wild cards.

It works for other fields right now, all I have to do is select "csutomers search" from "Look In" drop down list.

Thank you for your help.
