Where Clause for current form

Posted on 2014-01-29

I need a where clause for a query that will pull up results based on a current open form value.

The open form is name "MainForm". Depending on the "Office" value of that form, I want to query to give the results. The combo box on that field is titled cmOffice. The value is saved to a column on the table titled "Office".

Thanks!

Have you done VBA code?  You know how to get to that window, right (Alt + F12)?

Try this for your WHERE clause:


WHERE [Office] = Forms!MainForm!cmOffice
