hi experts

can plz someone tell me why the following code doesn't give me the expected results. if i do the exact search for  strSearchVin = strVinNum...it gives me the correct results but somehow doesn't work with RIGHT function. I wana look up my results from the text box (by exact number or last 5 matching numbers). Thanks

Private Sub cmdSearch_Click()
    Dim strVinNum As String
    Dim strSearchVin As String
   
'Check for Null value

    If IsNull(Me![txtVinSearch]) Or (Me![txtVinSearch]) = "" Then
        MsgBox "Please enter a value!", vbOKOnly, "Invalid Search"
        Me![txtVinSearch].SetFocus
    Exit Sub
End If

       
       
    DoCmd.ShowAllRecords
    DoCmd.GoToControl ("EquipSerialNum")
    DoCmd.FindRecord Me!txtVinSearch
       
    EquipSerialNum.SetFocus
    strVinNum = EquipSerialNum.Text
    txtVinSearch.SetFocus
    strSearchVin = txtVinSearch.Text
   

    If strSearchVin = Right(strVinNum, 5) Then
        EquipSerialNum.SetFocus
        txtVinSearch = ""
       
    Else
          MsgBox "Match Not Found", _
          txtVinSearch.SetFocus
    End If
End Sub

Your code seems right to me, so my guess is that the "strSearchVin" variable might not be the exact same as the "Right(strVinNum, 5)".

So, try this line in your if statement instead:
 If Right(strSearchVin,5) = Right(strVinNum, 5) Then

That way you're comparing apples with apples - that should do it.

Hope this helps
