    Unanswered: Search Box question

    I have a search box created, but I cannot figure out how to display more than one option. The search box searches for an issue tag and displays the choice in a text box. Now, I need to display more than one option if a question has the same issue tag. Can you help?

    Not, I suspect, unless you can give a much more coherent explanation of what you're trying to do! What do you mean by "option?" What do you mean by "issue tag?"

    Sorry to be so vague. when i say option I mean the search form I created looks for an issue tag and based on that tag it displays the question and answer. My problem lies that an issue tag can apply to more than one question (option). How do I get all the "options" to display? I have attached my form. Also, thanks for the welcome!!

    Sorry, Tim, but your second post is really no clearer to me than your first.

    It's always a good idea to give your version of Access when posting a question, but really, really important when attaching a copy of your database! You're apparently using either Access 2007 or 2010, which many members here, including myself, don't run. Files using these formats are impossible for these members to run, and downloading them is a waste of time.

    Hopefully someone who does run one of these versions will come along and take a look at your app!

    Good luck!
