I have the following code wrtten in VBA to fnd the Alias1 name.  How can I write the coding to
allow the computer to find an Alias2, Alias3, Alias4, and Alias5 if a entry is made in the TextBox for Alias2 or Alias3, Alias4, or Alias5 and the Find button is selected?

The coding:

Private Sub Command9_Click()

Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
rs.FindFirst "[Alias1] = '" & Me.Text10 & "'"
If rs.NoMatch = True Then
    MsgBox "There are No Records Found for this Alias Name.  Please Try Again"
    Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
End If
End Sub

Any help is appreciated.
