Ok, I am working on 2 forms the first I want to have a single text box with a control that says "look up" The user will enter a number in my case an isbn number. I want a second form to open up populating isbn number again from the previous form. The goal after is to use a select statement to return the column associated with that isbn number ie (the title, author, and description of the book ) I think I can figure that out since I just need the isbn value for my select statement. ( but if you want to help me there that would be sweet the second form would have a Title, Author, ISBN, and Description) I have looked around but cant seem to find an example related to my situation. Thanks guys!
