How to filter for multiple criteria

How do I filter for multiple criteria in Access 2007? If you right click on a column, select text filter, how can you filter for multiple criteria? For example, I want to search for LastName = 'Jones' or LastName = 'Smith'.

Entering Smith works; entering 'Jones' or 'Smith' doesn't. This did work in Access 2003.

On you toolbar you will have 3 filter options.  One of them is called Filter by Form.  If you click this you can add your selection as required.

To remove the filter you can use the right click "Remove Filter" option.

SteveBlevins,

Is this on all 2007 machines?

Is this in all databases opened with 2007?

Are you simply running the 2003 databases in Access 2007. Or did you convert them?
Conversely, are only the true Acc2007 format DB's having this issue?

MS has released service pack 1 for office 2007.
Install it, and see if the issue is fixed.

(Set a system restore point, and back up your system if possible, before installing the Service Pack.)


Also, Look into building a Multi-select list box.
This way you can just click the values, instead of typing them in. (and not worry about spelling errors in looooong "OR" statements)
