I have a form that has detail records.  I have 2 combo boxes that I would like to use to filter the detail records on the form with.  I have tried the following and does not seem to work.  How can this be done?

Dim strFilter As String
Dim strFilter2 As String
strFilter = "Make = '" & Combo136.Value & "'"
strFilter2 = "Type = '" & Combo138.Value & "'"
Me.Filter = strFilter
Me.Filter = strFilter2

Dim strFilter As String
strFilter=""

if me.Combo136 & ""<>"" then
strFilter = "[Make] = '" & Combo136.Value & "'"
end if
if me.Combo138 & ""<>"" then
     strFilter="" then
     strFilter = "[Type] = '" & Combo138.Value & "'"
     else
     strFilter = strFilter  & " And [Type] = '" & Combo138.Value & "'"
end if

Me.Filter = strFilter
me.filteron=true

Rey,
Many thanks.  I tried the code but it looks like the results are only getting filtered to the type filter and not both (type and make).  Any ideas?
