Sample Data:

Roll			Description			Price
========		==========			=======
2			Test				1.00
3			Test #2				2.00
...
8500			Final Test			499.00

Open in new window


I'm trying to allow my user to type: "3, 4, 800, 6789" and for my database to pull up a list of those rows.

I know that the query would look like this:

"SELECT * FROM `Inventory` WHERE IN `Roll` (3, 4, 800, 6789)"

I just can't pick apart all these "VBA", "Stored Procedure", and other posts about the topic because it seems so easy and obvious to do.

Ask user for input, plug the input into query. What am I missing and please be detailed since I come from the PHP MVC and MySQL world.

the syntax is

"SELECT * FROM Inventory  WHERE Roll  IN(3, 4, 800, 6789)"

if Roll is of Text Data type, you need to enclosed the values with quotes or single quotes


"SELECT * FROM Inventory  WHERE Roll  IN('3', '4', '800', '6789')"

You ignored the question. I don't care about my syntax, I need to know how to parameterize a "WHERE IN" query in Access 2013.

See Method #2. Extremely simple and it just worked. Just don't make the same mistake I did and name your module "InParam", since that's already the name of a function and it will error.
