Opening a query from a form

Opening a query from a form

Opening a query from a form

I've seen this dome but I don't know how to do it!

I need to open a query with a button on a form. I only want to see the items from a single source.
i.e. The query fields are: Date Item and Quantity

The item is a part number. The query includes all part numbers, and quantities for each date.

The form is set up by item Number [Item]
I tried using a micro to open up the query. In the query under Item, I put =[Item}.
When I click on the command button, the query opens and asks for [Item} and I have to inter the Item number.
How can I get the query to automatically select the current form's Item number?

This Newbie thanks you in advance for your HELP!

RE: Opening a query from a form

Create a form (could be datasheet) and use the where condition of DoCmd.OpenForm to filter the displayed records. The below code assumes some field/control names as well as a numeric data type.

CODE --> vba

Private Sub Item_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
    DoCmd.OpenForm "frmYourFormName", acFormDS, , "Item = " & Me.Item
End Sub
