Filter records based on data in a sub form

WillbrosIT asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have written code to filter based on all fields (about 40 of them) and this works ok.
My problem is I have a subform on the main form that is bound to a different table called notes.
Notes table only has two fields, employee_id and Note. the main screen is bound to a table with lots of fields employee_id, name, addr, work location, etc., the two table are relation tied via the employee_id field.
I have tried to build code to filter the note field and produce a current record set of all records on the main screen that match the filter, but is does not work. Can anyone help?
