Search in Access

I have a form in MS Access. I need to add a search button on this form. The Search can be done on Five database Fields. If Found, I need a report display the results fitting the criteria.
How to achieve that?

Thanks

Create a form with the textboxes for your creteria and a button to open your report.

In your report's design, click ... next to the recordsource property.

In the query designer, enter criteria similar to the following for each field that needs to be filtered on:

Forms!YourFormName!YourTextboxName

Place the following VBA code in the click event of your command button:

Docmd.OpenReport "YourReportName", acViewPreview


(You'll have to subsitute your actual report, form and field names for all of these)

These articles all show methods of doing what you are asking... and include sample databases:

From the questions you have posted so far, it sounds like you are very new to Access... so digging into sample databases to see how these things work might help your learn and apply the concepts to your own database.
