    Me.Recordset.FindFirst "[End User] =" & Chr(34) &  InputBox("Enter Name") & Chr(34)

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

" I assume it would go to the first one but then not sure about the second one."
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 ....
