Multiple criteria for one field in access query

I need to be able to compare two tables but need to input the criteria based on one table and then have it show me the mismatched records between the two.  Anyone have any ideas??

use the query wizard, select Find Unmatched query wizard

as for  the multiple criteria, you use

field
table

criteria  in(1,2,3)   , for number type fields

               in("1","2","3")   , for text type fields

There is an unmatched query wizard that might give you a start.  It is not clear to me what you are asking for.  There wizard will create a query between two tables and show you the rows from tblA that don't have a match in tblB.  Is that what you want or are you looking for a query that joins tblA to tblB on some common field and then returns only rows where fldC in tblA is different from fldC in tblB?

Yes but it has to be based a certain criteria from one of the tables and this criteria would be put in by the user.

Start by getting the basic query built.  There are a number of ways to provide criteria.  you'll need to tell us how you want to do it and how variable it is.
