At the end:

        Me.List.RowSource = WOlist
        Me.List.ColumnCount = 7
        Me.List.ColumnHeads = True
        Me.List.ColumnWidths = "3 cm; 12 cm; 3 cm; 3 cm; 3 cm ; 0 cm; 1 cm"
   
        Me.List.Requery <<<<<<<<<

1) Errr... your query:

    WOlist = "SELECT IssueData.AssetDesc,IssueData.ProblemDescription,IssueData.DateReceived,WorkStatus.WorkStatus, IssueData.WorkorderNo, [Work Type].WorkTypeDescription, IssueData.AssetNo " & _
    "FROM (IssueData LEFT JOIN [Work Type] ON IssueData.WorkType = [Work Type].WorkTypeID) LEFT JOIN WorkStatus ON IssueData.WorkStatus = WorkStatus.WorkStatusID " & Sortby & ";"

...doesn't include your variable "sel" at any point.

2) And your sortby variable doesn't seem to be populated with data at any point.



Suggest you add the line:

    Debug.Print(WOlist)

...just before your rowsource line and check that the sql string in the debug box is correct (i.e. it returns the data you expect).

The items are selected by a tick box for the item to be searched by, then the text is in a text box.

Could you please expand on the above

Ok i managed to debug and got the below

SELECT IssueData.AssetDesc,IssueData.ProblemDescription,IssueData.DateReceived,WorkStatus.WorkStatus, IssueData.WorkorderNo, [Work Type].WorkTypeDescription, IssueData.AssetNo FROM (IssueData LEFT JOIN [Work Type] ON IssueData.WorkType = [Work Type].WorkTypeID) LEFT JOIN WorkStatus ON IssueData.WorkStatus = WorkStatus.WorkStatusID ;
