    Unanswered: Query dialog box entry

    Hello;

    I have a query with one field that accepts user input ( [Enter selection here[ ) as "criteria". When I run the query and enter the info when prompted (i.e. "1" (no quotes)) everything runs fine. If I eliminate the user criteria selection prompt in the selected field, and run the query directly, I can enter selection such as " "1" or "2" " and the query will return all 1's and 2's. My question is... is it possible to have the user select multiple criteria, just as I can when I run the query without the user prompt, from within the dialog prompt box? I tried entering the user prompt just as I do when running the query directly, but nothing was returned, i.e I entered " "1" or "2" " in the dialog box.

    Thanks...

    Larry

    I think you need to use a form and build a filter or where clause.

    Yup. Making your own dialog box would seem to be the logical way to go
