Setting Filters in ACCESS Form

Data Entry FormHi,
 I have a form in ACCESS where users enter/update store information. In that I have a field called "ACTIVE" which is a character/string field with 1 in length. (It is not a Y or N field). If the store is active, it has 'Y'. If the store is inactive, it has 'N'.

I created three radio buttons on the form, but the only button that works is "Display All Stores". What am I doing wrong?


Private Sub ShowActive_Click()
DoCmd.ApplyFilter , "Status = 'Y'"
Me.FilterOn = True
Forms!
End Sub

Private Sub ShowInActive_Click()
DoCmd.ApplyFilter , "Status = 'N'"
Me.FilterOn = True
End Sub

Private Sub FilterOff_Click()
Me.FilterOn = False
End Sub

Worked like a charm! Thank you.

Now I tried the following also, but did not work. Can you explain?

Me.Filter = "Status =  'Y'"
Me.FilterOn = True

Me.Filter = "Status =  'N'"
Me.FilterOn = True

You say the field is named Active not Status

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Sorry, it should have been "ACTIVE".

Me.Filter = "Active =  'Y'"
Me.FilterOn = True

Me.Filter = "Active =  'N'"
Me.FilterOn = True
