Access Parameter Values in Form

The attached db is launched by Form "Frm_Start Up," that requires the user to select an [Analyst] and a [Billing_ID]. Then, form {Frm_Audit Information] is launced by button "Proceed to Audit Information."

'Frm_Audit Information" is based on query "Qry_Audit Information." When opened in design view, you will see where the fields for this query/form are based on what the user selects for [Analyst_ID] and [Billing_ID] in "Frm_Start Up."

The glitch is if "Qry_Audit Information" just has the parameter value for [Billing_ID] from :Frm Start Up" then the fields are populated in "Frm_Audit Information." However, if the paramater values are both [Analyst_ID] and [Billing_ID] or just [Analyst_ID] the fields do not get populated.

I am looking for a resolution that will allow all fields to populated, including [Analyst_ID] in "Frm_Audit Information."

1. The basic issue is that you are trying to Open the form with "stLinkCriteria", yet you have not set it.

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "Frm_Audit Information"
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

2. The second issue is that you have a textbox on top of the Billing_ID combobox.

3. Only about 5 of the 15 fields in Source Audit are filled in.
So when you say:
<looking for a resolution that will allow *all* fields to populated, including [Analyst_ID] in "Frm_Audit Information.">
I am a bit confused.

4. You cannot use the first form to Filter *And* add record to the second form. (if that is what you are trying to do)

Can you clearly state what your ultimate goal is with this system?
Something does not seem quite right with your design...

I slept on it, and caught my own issue. It is directly related to what you have said, that there is a flaw in the design. Let me work on this a bit more.
