I'm creating a search page that just returns the results of a search and displays them on a report that I have embedded in a form as a sub-report. The sub-report runs a query with the search term parameters (there are 3, if 1 or 2 are left blank, I programmatically change them to * and proceed with running the query.

The problem:
When there are no records returned, I want to display a message that says "No records to match your criteria, try again" I can't seem to find a way to get a record count or a no records returned out of a query??? I've tried putting code in the "no data," event of the report, I've tried opening a query recordset (which I'm not sure I'm doing correctly, as I've only used recordsets with tables in the past) I can't figure this out.

Can anyone help with solution?
