Not sure how to search in Access 2010

Not sure how to search in Access 2010

I haven't used access much since the 2000 version, and I can't seem to get my search to work. So here is what I need to do.

I have a form that includes the CustomerName, CustomerCity, and CustomerState fields (among others, but these are the three I would like to give the option to search).

From what I have read, I can just put the search fields in the header of my existing form. I just can't seem to get the programming to work. What is the best way to do this and what is the programming necessary to get me there?

Thanks in advance,


RE: Not sure how to search in Access 2010

create a stored procedure with prameaters name the controls on your from as the prameaters

this is a undocumented feature
