in the criteria for the student name, use

nz([Enter Student Name],[Student Name])

this is assuming that the name of the field you are applying the criteria is [Student Name]


post the sql of the query you are using..

FROM tblHorseAssign
WHERE (((tblHorseAssign.ReportDate) Between [Enter Start Date] And [Enter End Date]) AND ((tblHorseAssign.StudentName)=nz([Enter Student Name],[Student Name])));

use this { no space on field StudentName }


SELECT tblHorseAssign.ReportDate, tblHorseAssign.HorseName, tblHorseAssign.ReportedBy, tblHorseAssign.Paid, tblHorseAssign.PaidBy, tblHorseAssign.StartTime, tblHorseAssign.EndTime, tblHorseAssign.StudentName
FROM tblHorseAssign
WHERE (((tblHorseAssign.ReportDate) Between [Enter Start Date] And [Enter End Date]) AND ((tblHorseAssign.StudentName)=nz([Enter Student Name],[StudentName])));
