Hi Everyone,
I know that by adding this code "[text]" in the criteria field of a query you get a text box to enter the data. My question is can this be a combo or list box of known items.  Also if known, is ther a way to make that text box a two part box for entering a range of choice?

I'm not intermediate for this BTW, i'm a rookie to databases :D

No, other than a text box you can't create controls at run time in a simple query.

For what do you want to do you need to create a form with a little bit of logic behind in order  to do what you want.
