Access 2010 Drill Down to Another Form

Posted on 2014-09-14
Last Modified: 2014-09-14
I have a form (frm_Accounting_Transactions) with a field (Fund_Map) that has multiple values separated by commas (EC,EG,EM,EP,ER,ES,ET,TR)
I would like to drill down to another form (frm_fund_Groups) field Fund Type Code and display only the records based on the multiple values from the Fund_Map field on the frm_Accountinng_Transactions. Thanks

use these codes

Private Sub Fund_Map_Click()
Dim strFund As String, j As Integer, fundArr() As String
If InStr(Me.Fund_Map, ",") Then
    fundArr = Split(Me.Fund_Map, ",")
    For j = 0 To UBound(fundArr)
        strFund = strFund & "," & Chr(39) & fundArr(j) & Chr(39)
    strFund = Chr(39) & Me.Fund_Map & Chr(39)
End If
If InStr(strFund, ",") Then
    strFund = Mid(strFund, 2)
End If

DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_fund_Groups", , , "[Fund Type Code] in(" & strFund & ")"
End Sub

You can also give this a try:
DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_fund_Groups", , , "InStr('" & Me.Fund_Map & "',[Fund Type Code])>0"
