OK that works.  Can you add a "like" into that?  I wonder how this code addresses the fact that there could be two or more records if i use a "like"?  I assume it would go to the first one but then not sure about the second one.  Do you have an idea about that or maybe I should go about it another way.  

thank you

As is, it's just going to find the first occurrence in the Recordset.

Well, using Like is a different paradigm.  You will have to decide what to do - if anything - with additional occurrences ... or something that is only a partial hit ... ala Like "ABC" ....

OK. Well I think I need to rephrase this question.  I will close it out as you have provided an answer.   I will ask another that requests to handle multiple occurences and see what happens.  I do need to handle multiple occurrences for "like".

You are welcome.

Yes ... decide "*how* ... you want to handle multiple occurrences first ....
