    Try using the Filter property for your form

    Dim myCriteria As String
    myCriteria = "[LastName] = '" & Me.mySearchTxtBoxName & "'"
    Me.Filter = myCriteria
    Me.FilterOn = True
    Assuming that your form RecordSource property is set to the table that holds all the names and the last name field in this table is named LastName. If Smith is enterd into the mySearchTxtBoxName TextBox and the code above is placed into a button beside this TextBox, then your form will populate with all the records of people that have the last name Smith.

    Or just use: DoCmd.RunSQL mySQLString
