vba filter not working on OR

I have this filter :
Me.Form.Filter = "[Body type]<>'Estate' OR [body type]<>'MPV' OR [body type]<>'Hatchback' Or [body type]<>'Saloon' Or [body type]<>'Roadster'"

The syntax appears ok however i get records showing within the exclusions.

if i do this Me.Form.Filter = "[Body type]<>'Estate' it will exclude the group.

You can't use OR with <>
Try to change OR to AND

For example A <> 2 OR A <> 1 will always be true

As Alex said, you can change your ORs to ANDs, or you can use this:
Me.Form.Filter = "[Body type] NOT IN('Estate', 'MPV', 'Hatchback', 'Saloon', 'Roadster')"
