I have a search combo box on a form to pull a record from a table. I would like to select certain records  to pull into the combo box based on data (year and location) in the table.

1) I have a form where the user puts in the year and location.
2) then the user clicks on a button that opens a form. The year and location are transferring from the form in #1 to this form.
3) I have a combo box on this second form:
SELECT [tr_hip_no], [tr_name1], [tr_name2], [tr_na_num] FROM transactions WHERE sale_year=me.sale_year And sale_location=me.sale_location ORDER BY [tr_name1];

When I run the form ...it prompts for me.sale_year and me.sale_location.

I also tried: frmtransactions is the form this combox is located:
WHERE sale_year=[frmtransactions].form.sale_year And sale_location=[frmtransactions].form.sale_location  

Thanks...

In your sql statement you need to refer to the "controls" on your first form. Ie the form where the user enters the year and location and this selection form must remain open when you open the second form.

WHERE sale_year=[frmtransactions].form.sale_year And sale_location=[frmtransactions].form.sale_location  

Should be
WHERE sale_year = Forms!frmtransactions!sale_year AND sale_location = Forms!frmtransactions!sale_location
