I am looking to add a list of people to my form on the lead list tab, on the contact form.  The list would be a sortable list.   It would sort by the drop down boxes and Id like to have a search box attached to the list of people too.  So the list of people would changed based on what is in the search box and what is in the drop down boxes.  

The drop downs would be like the ones on the general tab,   but I don't need the third one.  Just the first two.  and then the list of people based on the second drop down.

I need to show Policy name, connam name, connam phone, conname email, Targeting and product.  

See attached.

I don't know if you looking to learn, or just we should do work for you.
so to add drop downs to filter you can copy your two comboboxes, and filter the recordsource on the form with it. - I did it in the sample.

For sorting you can or use the datasheet view, or like you did with continuous form (that looks nicer) you can right click on each field and sort.

Oh, it is also nice to learn how to do it.  I will need to add something similar in regards to a list of actions on my database.  Ill take a look at your code and how you did it to see if I can apply that to the actions.  If I cant figure it out Ill ask.  Thanks again for your help.
