Filter query from access form using variable
I would like to limit the output of a query based on the value of a variable on an acces form.
I am sure the answer is simple but the syntax i don't know.
The original query is named qry_PDM_Measures and includes...
- Project Category
The combo boxes i want to control are on a form named frm_PDM_Results.....
When a value is selected from cboProjectCategory i want to limit the list in cboMeasure to those measures where Me.ProjectCategory on the form is equal to Project Category in the query.
Any help most welcome.

Hey, I have not heard from you in a while.
Nice of you to post on the last day of the year...
Anyway, here are some popular links to investigate as well:
I am not an access programmer as you may have gathered, i am just a person that likes to dabble for fun now and again but i do like to see who is doing well in the league table.
The result earns the points thats for sure but can you just add one tiny extra bit to the criteria
....And WHERE [Measure] <> Forms!frm_PDM_Results.cboP
or something similar
I started with Experts Exchange in 2004 and it's been a mainstay of my professional computing life since. It helped me launch a career as a programmer / Oracle data analyst
Solved, just a couple of bracket problems
WHERE (([Project Category] = Forms!frm_PDM_Results.cboP
gory) And ([Measure] <> Forms!frm_PDM_Results.cboP
Will post the points now
