Well, you can't do that in A2003 or prior.  However, in >=A2007, you can use the TempVars collection to do that.

What version are you using?

Another work around is to call a Function from the query that returns the current value of the Global variable.  You just cannot reference it directly (in A2003 or prior).

That worked...Thanks

Option Compare Database

Global FilterFacility As String

Public Function GetFilterFacility() As Variant
  GetFilterFacility = FilterFacility
End Function
