How do I adjust a Where statement in Macro Builder in Access 2010 to select the correct data?

I created a form and on that form is a textbox called tbxJobNum. I enter a Job Number into that box and then click the Submit button in the bottom of the form. The Submit button has a macro built on it that I want to pass the JobNumber from the tbxJobNum box to the Report that it is opening. I can only assume that my where condition is currently incorrect as I'm not getting any records to return.

The current Where clause is
 [Reports]![rptForm1]![jpJobNum]=[Forms]![frmFAI]![tbxJobNum] Or [Reports]![rptForm1]![jhJobNum]=[Forms]![frmFAI]![tbxJobNum]

Open in new window

I want this clause to function as I have the criteria set up in the query originally as pictured below.

Thanks in advance for the help!

What else does your Macro do? If all it does is open the report, then you might consider using the Openreport method instead:

Docmd.OpenReport "YourReportName", acViewPreview, , "jpJobNum=" & Me.tbxJobNum & " OR jhJobNum=" & Me.tbxJobNum

If jbJobNum and jhJobNum are Text fields:

Docmd.OpenReport "YourReportName", acViewPreview, , "jpJobNum='" & Me.tbxJobNum & "' OR jhJobNum='" & Me.tbxJobNum & "'"

Are you sure you have data that meets the criteria?

Does the macro work with only one field's criteria?

LSM - I tried your formula for text fields and am not getting that to work..  Here is a screen shot of what I've got.. I removed one of the criteria to see if at least one is working and it is not.. I've managed to get the parameter I'm putting into tbxJobNum to transfer over to report (I tested this by added a textbox to the report that returns the input data) There is just something wrong with the formula.

boag2000: I'm using the Openreport command within the macro builder on the button and trying to add the tbxJobNum input data to the Where clause as part of the OpenReport command. Here is a screenshot of the macrobuilder..

Hmmm ... it would seem that my suggestion provided you with the correct syntax and therefore some assistance, but if you don't feel that it did, then I'm okay with the disposition. Glad you got it resolved.
Jarred MeyerProduction ManagerAuthor Commented:
Add assisted response from LSM.
Jarred MeyerProduction ManagerAuthor Commented:
Sorry LSM.. I didn't even realize the order of both formulas was the same.. Just the syntax was different..
