1.  Start out by removing the WHERE clause, does the report work then?  If not, then you have a larger problem than the WHERE clause.

2.  In your WHERE clause, start out by trying:

WHERE [kwahudb_thru 0312partly].[NAME_])=[Enter Name!]

and see whether that works.  It should popup a message "Enter Name" when you run the report.  If you enter a valid name then it should work.

3. Make sure that the name of the forms data control is exactly the way you have it written on:

WHERE [kwahudb_thru 0312partly].[NAME_]=[Forms]![FormquryName].[txtEnterNameHere]

It looks like the Form name 'FormquryName' should probably be replaced with the actual name of your form.  Although that could be the name of your form, it looks like it may be misspelled.
