Please see the code.  It is pulling the ID numbers not the description.  What do I need to change in this SQL statement.

SELECT DISTINCT [CG Info].Products, [CG Info].Products, [Forms]![Contact Form]![select] AS Expr1
FROM [CG Info]
WHERE ((([Forms]![Contact Form]![select]) Is Null Or ([Forms]![Contact Form]![select])=[Targeting]))
ORDER BY [CG Info].Products;

Its quite possible bad code.  Here is the sample database.  Look at the contact form. It is the top middle combo box.

HI,

pls try
SELECT DISTINCT products.Products, [Forms]![Contact Form]![select] AS Expr1
FROM products INNER JOIN (Targeting INNER JOIN [CG Info] ON Targeting.ID = [CG Info].Targeting) ON products.ID = [CG Info].Products
WHERE ((([Forms]![Contact Form]![select]) Is Null Or ([Forms]![Contact Form]![select])=[Targeting]![ID]));

That works on the second box.  But once I made that change the third box doesnt work any longer.

Hi,

like in the first a join was missing

SELECT [CG Info].ContactID, [CG Info].[Policy Name], [Forms]![Contact Form]![productselect] AS Expr1
FROM products INNER JOIN [CG Info] ON products.ID = [CG Info].Products
WHERE ((([Forms]![Contact Form]![productselect]) Is Null Or ([Forms]![Contact Form]![productselect])=[Products].[Products]))
ORDER BY [CG Info].[Policy Name];

Ill post a new question about this.  I shouldnt add on to an already closed topic.  The issue is I changed the combo box so it doesnt show up on each tab.  Then I thought I used all the same criteria as the previous one and now it shows the id numbers on the last combo box.
