i have a subform on my main form. the subform has underlying query attached to it. i made a button on the main form which displays data on the subform. the field that is required is the name only. the subform's source object depends on the button i click. the query is this: "select * from table where name like [Enter name:];" the problem is this: there are 2 instances of the question "Enter name:" appearing, how do i eliminate this, the other instance of it i mean. thanks!
