I have a table with a field that is a lookup to a table listing possible categories in which I can place a student.  I'd like to perform a query that includes all records for which a certain category ("Silver Creek") is selected.  The field type is number and has this under the lookup:

SELECT [T_Category].[ID], [T_Category].[Category] FROM T_Category ORDER BY [Category];

The bound column is 1 (the index/unique ID) and the column count is 2.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ace. I see that you have a relationsip set up as one (Category) to many (students).  If a student can be in more than one category, just that change things?
