Please see the attached screen shot.  I've smudged the data since it is confidential.

What I want to do is use this split form which I have opening maximized in the onopen event of the form.  And in the left hand column I will turn the fields into comboboxes for certain field, not all of them.  I want the user to be able to select a record from the combobox and have only the records that contain that selection to appear on the right.  

Then in the footer of the form I'll need a command button to "Display All Records".  

How can I do this?

I would use a main form with a sub-form linked with master/child fields from your underlying table/query.
