One of the reasons why queries are used, is for filtering.

So you could also add whatever you are trying to filter for as the Criteria.

(Or am I missing something)?

I would like the query to open and appear like the screen shot below.
 It will not be used in a form or report.

On load I would like it to open with the FILTER BY FORM button pressed.

Like mbizup posted above with the docmd.RunCommand acCmdFilterByForm.
I see how that works for a form or report but I would like the query to start like that.

(No Points wanted)


Open the query from a button on a form.

The code on the button will be something like this:

  DoCmd.OpenQuery "YourQuery"
  DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdFilterByForm

Again, no points wanted.

Gil,

"Why wouldn't you want the points?"

1. Because the solution is mbizup's, not mine.
2. I don't really care about the points.
4. You have given me enough points!  ;-)  LOL!
3. I did this just to help out

So give the full points to mbizup

;-)

Jeff,

Thanks.

Sorry for being absent on this one.  I've been swamped today.  When I posted, I had misread "as soon as query opens" as  "as soon as Form opens".  

I'd be happy with any point allocation you decide on.  I have a lot of points and still can't trade them in for a steak dinner.  :)
