Hi Experts,
I'm working on a query, I have a combo box in a form, here is my query, what I want to do is: I want user to be able to search either they select data from the combo box or not.  If they don't select the combo box then query will show all the records that they checked, if the select from the combo box then show all the records that match all the check boxes plus the combo box.  Do I need to have two queries? I would like to use one query.  below is my query:

SELECT DISTINCT tblBriefBank.BBID, tblBriefBank.BBCase, tblBriefBank.BBDocket, tblBriefBank.BBChildDOB, tblBriefBank.BBPAtty, tblBriefBank.BBPAttyFirm, tblBriefBank.BBMTPD, tblBriefBank.BBDispostition, tblBriefBank.BBJudge, tblJudge.JDName, tblBriefBank.BBDateRuling, tblBriefBank.BBTranscript, tblBriefBank.BBAppBrief, tblBriefBank.BBAppDescision, tblBriefBank.BBIRA, tblBriefBank.BBIRB, tblBriefBank.BBIRC, tblBriefBank.BBIRD, tblBriefBank.BBIRE, tblBriefBank.BBIRF, tblBriefBank.BBIRG, tblBriefBank.BBIRH, tblBriefBank.BBIRI, tblBriefBank.BBIRJ, tblBriefBank.BBIRK, tblBriefBank.BBIRL
FROM tblBriefBank INNER JOIN tblJudge ON tblBriefBank.BBJudge = tblJudge.JDCode
WHERE (((tblBriefBank.BBMTPD)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![Text135]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRA)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRA]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRB)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRB]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRC)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRC]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRD)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRD]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRE)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRE]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRF)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRF]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRG)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRG]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRH)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRH]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRI)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRI]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRJ)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRJ]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRK)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRK]) AND ((tblBriefBank.BBIRL)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![BBIRL])) OR (((tblBriefBank.BBJudge)=[forms]![frmASAInquiry]![Combo140]));

This query shows all the records but if I select from the combo box then it's not working, I know it needs to be AND and OR, but could not figure it out how.
