Guys I know I will probably get a lot of questions why I am doing this in Excel and not access. The reason is because we have several users and company will not purchase additional licenses for PC's.

My userform already sends data to access table when the user enter the data and click submit. What I am trying to do now is search the database for records and the results populate in the excel userform so we can make edits to the data.

I added a 2 text box to my form that the users enter the date and the branch no they wish to search. I and not sure how to change the code to accept both criteria.  Currently I have just the date field, but I get a data mismatch when I click the search button. Can you help me get this running?


Private Sub CommandButton4_Click()
Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
Dim searchstring As String
    ' connect to the Access database
    Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Ace.OLEDB.12.0; " & _
        "Data Source=C:\Users\Desktop\TestDBA\Tracking_be.accdb"
    ' open a recordset
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    search = txtDate.Value
    search2 = txtBranchNo.value
    searchstring = "SELECT businessDate, advances, advanceAmount, denied, newAccounts, stopPayments,wires, cpg,branchLoc FROM tblMsrTotals WHERE [businessDate] = '" & search & "'"
    rs.Open "tblMsrTotals", searchstring, cn, adOpenStatic
    txtbusinessDate.Text = rs.Fields("businessDate") 'or whatever
    txtadvances.Text = rs.Fields("advances") 'or whatever
    txtadvanceAmount.Text = rs.Fields("advanceAmount") 'or whatever
    txtdenied.Text = rs.Fields("denied") 'or whatever
    txtnewAccounts.Text = rs.Fields("newAccounts") 'or whatever
    txtstopPayments.Text = rs.Fields("stopPayments") 'or whatever
    txtwires.Text = rs.Fields("wires") 'or whatever
    txtcpg.Text = rs.Fields("cpg") 'or whatever
    txtbranchLoc.Text = rs.Fields("branchLoc") 'or whatever
    Set rs = Nothing

End Sub
