Access 2010 Form with multiple values in a field

Posted on 2014-09-23
Last Modified: 2014-09-24
I have an Access form with multiple values in a field separated by a space in the following format:
Field(Proprietary_Debit) .....Sample Data (Text)
21100009 88010001
21100009 88010001 57000001

I would like to drill down to and another form and display the data that matches. The code below works for non-multivalued fields:
DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Object_Classes", , , "[USSGL]='" & Me.Proprietary_Credit & "'"

You can open with a list of values:

strList = "('" & Replace(Me.Proprietary_Credit, " ", "','") & "')"
' Example: "('21100009','88010001')"
DoCmd.OpenForm "frm_Object_Classes", , , "[USSGL] In " & strList

I have thousands of rows so that would be impractical

You wrote you would open a form. Click a button running the code and that will do it.
