Access 2016 VB code

My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and I have Office 365 and Access 2016 installed on my desktop.  I created a small password creator, which works very well.  But I am trying to implement a search function, and this does not seem to work.  I copied the code from a 2007 sample app.  
Basically,  I would open the Form: frmSearch.  Where there is a field "Select field to Search:", and in the field I would select the field of the table to  search criteria, eg: URL or site.  The field is a combo field with a drop down arrow, to allow me to select the field from the Table : tblMainPasswordTable.  I normally select the field URL or site.
In the "Search for" field, which is unbound field, I would type the search criteria, eg; Office.
And then select the option box " Any part of field" , and then hit the View Results button.
This would open the Form, frmPwd to display the selected criteria and display the results from the table : tblMainPasswordTable.  

But the code is not working, it does not display the correct record for the search criteria.  and at times it bombs at the line : Open Args
Attached is the visual basic source code of the app, and hope the Experts could please let me know where I goofed, as my experience in VB is only at the 2007 level. Thank u and Regards.

Hi.

Please, can you attach the database file?, reading the code is useful, but see how you call the code procedures and the forms is much better, beacause we can understand what the code does really.

Thanks.

Best regards.

Antonio.

Try to compress (zip) the file.
Other option, add dot txt (.txt) at end of file.

Not sure if I correctly understand the problem.
Check if you are opening the right form.

Ignore the frmPwd.

Open the frmSearch.
Enter Search for values and check.
Modified open form to use Where condition.
