MultiSelect List Filter with Additional filter fields

What I have is an Access report that is filtered by a multi-select list-box.  So the end user is presented with the list box and then selects a button the opens the filtered report.  But now the user wants and additional list-box filter called sSF or Square Feet.  So now the query needs to have Categories and Square Feet.  

Right now I was Here is my code.  I need to add the additional filter to the DoCmd somehow?

Private Sub cmdOpenReport_Click()
  On Error GoTo Err_cmdOpenReport_Click
  Dim sSF           As String
  Dim strWhere      As String
  Dim ctl           As Control
  Dim varItem       As Variant

  'make sure a selection has been made
  If Me.lstCategories.ItemsSelected.Count = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Must select at least 1 Category"
    Exit Sub
  End If

  'add selected values to string
  Set ctl = Me.lstCategories
  For Each varItem In ctl.ItemsSelected
    strWhere = strWhere & ctl.ItemData(varItem) & ","
  Next varItem
  'trim trailing comma
  strWhere = Left(strWhere, Len(strWhere) - 1)
  
  ' Square Feet field
Select Case Me.cboBigBox
  Case "Normal Report"
    sSF = "[SizeSmall]>=0"
  Case "Less than 5,000 SF"
    sSF = "[SizeSmall]<5000"
  Case "5,000 to 10,000 SF"
    sSF = "[SizeSmall]>=5000 AND [SizeSmall]<10000"
  Case "10,000 to 20,000 SF"
    sSF = "[SizeSmall]>=10000 AND [SizeSmall]<20000"
  Case "20,000 and above"
    sSF = "[SizeSmall]>=20000"
  Case Else
End Select

  'open the report, restricted to the selected items
  
  'If Len(sSF) > 0 Then strFilter = "[CategoryID] " & strWhere & " AND " & sSF

  DoCmd.OpenReport "FilteredReport", acViewReport, , "tblCategories.CategoryID IN(" & strWhere & ")"

Exit_cmdOpenReport_Click:
  Exit Sub

Err_cmdOpenReport_Click:
  MsgBox Err.Description
  Resume Exit_cmdOpenReport_Click

End Sub

I don't quite understand what you need. It looks like your code is using both Category and SquareFeet when creating your WHERE statement. If so, and if the field "SizeSmall" is included in the Recordsource of your report, then it should work.

Does your code not work? If not, what happens when you run it? Do you get an error? If you do, post the details of the error.

Try this, replace lines 39 to 40 with the following:
strFilter = "tblCategories.CategoryID IN(" & strWhere & ")"
If Len(sSF) > 0 Then strFilter = strFilter &  " AND " & sSF
DoCmd.OpenReport "FilteredReport", acViewReport, , strFilter

Open in new window

Also don't forget to Dim your strFilter variable.
