When I run my query there is a title bar at the top of the dialogbox that says "Enter Parameter Value" my end users will not understand this statement. Can I change or remove this title?

But instead of using a parameter query, you could provide them with a form to enter the value prior to running the query.  This is a more professional method as it allows you to test the value in the control on the form prior to executing the query.  It also provides you with the option of presenting the user with a combo box or listbox from which to select the appropriate value.

With a parameter query, that pops up an input box, you have no such ability to test the value that was input, so if the user mistypes a value and gets zero results, they have no way of knowing whether they simply entered a wrong value, or whether there were no results for the entered value.

Many thanks. Option 1 will work for me. They don't want me to use a list box for some reason. I know that any text they type could contain typing errors but I don't have a choice. Also, thanks for the fast response.
