Access Vb - Filtering a List Control as Data is input in a Control Textbox - Grouping/Ordering List

Hello All

This is a followup question to Original Question on same topic

Irog assisted in fixing the problem after Mbiz had pointed me down the correct path but I was missing a piece still.

The filtering of the list as the user inputs info into a bound textbox control works but the list is sorting based on the ID number.  I need to modify the code to keep the list filtered by the StreetName (text).....

The original code that filters (unsorted) is.....

    If Len(StreetName.Text) > 0 Then
        strSQL = "SELECT AddressStreetID, StreetName FROM dta_Streets" & _
        " WHERE AddressStreetID > 2 AND StreetName LIKE '" & Me.StreetName.Text & "*'"
    Else
        strSQL = "SELECT AddressStreetID, StreetName FROM dta_Streets"
    End If

    Me.listExistingStreets.RowSource = strSQL

Open in new window


Now then I attempted to modify the strSQL to Group and Order the list but it makes the filtering of the list unresponsive....

The code I tried changing it to is:
    If Len(StreetName.Text) > 0 Then
        strSQL = "SELECT AddressStreetID, StreetName FROM dta_Streets" & _
        " WHERE AddressStreetID > 2 AND StreetName LIKE " & Me.StreetName & "*'" & _
        " GROUP BY AddressStreetID, StreetName" & _
        " ORDER BY StreetName"
    Else
        strSQL = "SELECT AddressStreetID, StreetName FROM dta_Streets" & _
        " GROUP BY AddressStreetID, StreetName" & _
        " ORDER BY StreetName"

    End If
    
    Me.listExistingStreets.RowSource = strSQL

Open in new window


Is my syntax wrong on adding the Group By and Order By ????
