Hi,

This is 2 part question. 400 for 1st part and 100 points for 2nd part.

1. Sorry I am confused as in why this VBA called query isn't displaying results while a query, designed via "query design" feature is working.

This is the query I am calling from VBA

CurrentDb.Execute "SELECT ZONE.CITY AS [DESTIN CITY], ZONE.PROVINCE AS [DESTIN PROVINCE], INTER.SERVICE, INTER.Class, INTER.[MIN], INTER.[LTL], INTER.[500], INTER.[1M], INTER.[2M], INTER.[5M], INTER.[10M], INTER.[20M] INTO [TEMP2] FROM [ZONE] INNER JOIN INTER ON ZONE.[TCOMBI] = INTER.DTCOMBO WHERE INTER.SERVICE =" & Chr(34) & [Forms]![Prov2Country]![servicecombo] & Chr(34) & " And ZONE.[ZONE] = " & Chr(34) & "LOCAL" & Chr(34) & " And INTER.[TCOMBO] Like '" & userinput & "*' & Chr(34) ORDER BY ZONE.CITY, INTER.Class", dbFailOnError

The query designed via 'query-design' has the following sql

SELECT ZONE.CITY AS [DESTIN CITY], ZONE.PROVINCE AS [DESTIN PROVINCE], INTER.SERVICE, INTER.Class, INTER.Min AS [MIN], INTER.LTL, INTER.[500], INTER.[1M], INTER.[2M], INTER.[5M], INTER.[10M], INTER.[20M] INTO [TEMP OUTPUT]
FROM [ZONE] INNER JOIN INTER ON ZONE.TCOMBI = INTER.DTCOMBO
WHERE (((INTER.SERVICE)=[Forms]![Prov2Country]![servicecombo]) AND ((ZONE.ZONE)="Local") AND ((INTER.TCOMBO) Like "HALIFAXNOVA SCOTIA" & "*"))
ORDER BY ZONE.CITY, INTER.Class;


Part 2. I want to display some variables I pass into a function as 'column headers'

variable     column name
ocity         origin city
oprovince   origin province

given the following code

CurrentDb.Execute "SELECT ocity as [ORIGIN CITY], oprovince as [ORIGIN PROVINCE], ZONE.CITY AS [DESTIN CITY], ZONE.PROVINCE AS

but the above is not displaying. Tried online but its very hard to find this type of help :/

Thanks for the help!

Thanks that worked!

As for part 1: I've simplified the queries so its easy to see why

VBA Query

CurrentDb.Execute "SELECT ZONE.CITY AS [DESTIN CITY], ZONE.PROVINCE AS [DESTIN PROVINCE], INTER.SERVICE, INTER.Class INTO [TEMP2] FROM [ZONE] INNER JOIN INTER ON ZONE.[TCOMBI] = INTER.DTCOMBO WHERE INTER.SERVICE =" & Chr(34) & [Forms]![Prov2Country]![servicecombo] & Chr(34) & " And ZONE.[ZONE] = " & Chr(34) & "LOCAL" & Chr(34) & " And INTER.[TCOMBO] Like '" & userinput & "*' & Chr(34) ORDER BY ZONE.CITY, INTER.Class", dbFailOnError

Above is outputting a table but empty. userinput value = "HALIFAXNOVA SCOTIA"

SQL query

SELECT ZONE.CITY AS [DESTIN CITY], ZONE.PROVINCE AS [DESTIN PROVINCE], INTER.SERVICE, INTER.Class INTO [TEMP OUTPUT]
FROM [ZONE] INNER JOIN INTER ON ZONE.TCOMBI = INTER.DTCOMBO
WHERE (((INTER.SERVICE)=[Forms]![Prov2Country]![servicecombo]) AND ((ZONE.ZONE)="Local") AND ((INTER.TCOMBO) Like "HALIFAXNOVA SCOTIA" & "*"))
ORDER BY ZONE.CITY, INTER.Class;

The above is outputting a big table

Sorry I didn't see this before,  this is inappropriate use of the point system.

You should be asking a single question per question.

note,  you can ask a 100 point question  and a 400 point question if you want. that is fine.

you'll likely get more response to the 400 point on though,  some people won't even see a 100 point question because their filters block them
