Add Search form

HI All!

I have a simple Access DB with a form bound to a table (I have attached it).  The form reports various figures that a cashier reports each day.

The form is very useful because it makes calculations on the fly based on the values entered which help us identify discrepancies in the cash reports.  But if I were to use this form, it will become difficult to navigate to the proper if after a while I wanted to look at a specific day, so I am looking for a way to add search criteria to list the entries for a particular day using a date picker, then select the entry from a list that populates based on the search date and be taken to that record.    I'm thinking something in the header of the existing form, but open to suggestion.

The attached DB is pretty much one of my only Access creations, so any advice will help.  thanks!

thanks for the quick reply.  This is very close to what I'm thinking, but what happens once there are hundreds of days of entries after a year?  would it be possible to enter a date (using a date picker) in the field at the top, and once picked, it shows all the results that have that date?

The date picker works great, but:

1.  the records are not necessarily entered in chronological order and
2. there are often several records for the same date

so, if I put in a date in the WORK DATE field, I get taken to the first record, but what I am looking for is a list of records that match that date in the dropdown (I guess the CASHIER field should show up in the results too).  So if record 1 had a date of OCT 24th and record 8 also had the same date, I would not realize that htere are several records with teh same date so the search may not find exactly what i need.
