When i run the query parameters pop up. Asking for the fields that I have in the search. Below is the code that I am using.

Like "*" & [Forms]![Inventory Report]![Employee Name] & "*"

I have one table that the query is getting the information from.

The query wants field from the form.  If the form is open, then it will take the form instead of prompting for them.  You cannot do that with a modal form.  Change the form's modal property to No.
