I have a status ComboBox list [ViewStatus] on my form [MainForm] header which I use to restrict the records showing on this form's detail section

The Form is based on a query with Status criteria  = [Forms]![MainForm]![ViewStatus]

This works well with exact matches but I also want [ViewStatus] to allow showing  "All" records

|What is the easiest way of writing this criteria to show all records when requested?

Criteria Like "*" usually works but I can't find a way of translating All to anything that works

Using * should work. Looks like you need the IIF check to determine the selection

eg

Criteria LIKE IIF( [Forms]![MainForm]![ViewStatus] = "All", "*",  [Forms]![MainForm]![ViewStatus])

Fantastic, almost got there but had Like in front of my * instead of in front of my Iif...
