MS ACCESS:  Filter query based on check box selection within userform..

Last Modified: 2020-02-11
Hello Team

Can you please advise on the syntax that would be required to filter a query from selecting a true or false value of a checkbox.

Form Name:      frmAnalytics
Query Name;    qryRenewal
Checbox Name.  chkNoErrors
Reference Field:  TotalErrorCount

The checkbox purpose is to allow the user to select whether or not the qryRenewals is to be filtered with records that show all records (false checkbox value) or to only show records that have a positive Total Error Count value which means excluding any Null or 0 entries in the Total Error Count field.(true checkbox value)

In the qryRenewals I already have criteria filters that are driven by the selections of the frmAnaIytics form and would like to add the checkbox filtering using the same method.  For example, I have a filter field in the query which filters by which team is selected from a drop down control on the form using:


The field holding the above formula has a '<>False' query criteria applied.

As always, any assistance is much appreciated.



I  have form  which is used to filter various queries and export for reporting.

What I would like to do is, allow the user the have the option to select a checkbox to filter out records that contain any null or 0 entries in the TotalCount field of the qryRenewal.  

I already have criteria filters sent into the qryRenewal that are linked and determined by the selection of the frmAnalytics for dates, query selection, team selection etc.

On this form, the user has the option to select dates for data pull, type of query to pull from and if they wish to filter only by particular team members or managers etc.
In my queries I have input into the following in order to pull filter by a selected user:  

Open in new window

I then filter the field by <>False in order for the entries in the User field of the query to be selected.

What I would like to do is to add another filtering field that refers to
