I have a table called HRData that includes a field called MRC

I have a form that has a listbox that sources the unique values for MRC an allows for one selection. If I want to use VBA to execute a query against the entire table and filter on MRC I am running into issues trying to reference the selection the value from the Listbox.

so base query would be

SELECT * FROM HRData
WHERE [MRC] = 'The selection in the list box'

How would this need to be adjusted if:

1. The listbox was muliti select and I need an IN statement instead.

SELECT * FROM HRData
WHERE [MRC] In ('Selecton 1' , 'Selection 2'... etc.

2. I wanted to filter against more than just MRC but also other fields like "Country" or "Job Function" that also have list box choices.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
