If cmb_yrqtr = Null Then
MsgBox "You must select a year/qtr", vbExclamation, "Sorry!"


Else
DoCmd.OpenQuery "Mtbl_AllIndicatorfilter", acViewNormal, acEdit


When I put a break on the line 'If cmb_yrqtr = Null Then'  i can see that 'cmb_yrqtr' = Null-
so why isn't my msgbox popping up?

I think numeric??

In the colum I have -1 and 2005_3

The combo box comes from a union query-
