DoCmd.ApplyFilter Question

DoCmd.ApplyFilter Question

DoCmd.ApplyFilter Question


Ok, so I am looking at someone else's code. They have used a filter on a form. But the filter is like

DoCmd.ApplyFilter "NameOfaQuery"

I don't see any documentation that you can use a name of a query as a filter. I assume it is just taking the criteria from the query and applying it to the filter.

Anybody else ever seen this before?



RE: DoCmd.ApplyFilter Question

Oops.. I found it.

You can use a query as a filet.



RE: DoCmd.ApplyFilter Question


Your question is not a VBA question. It is an Access Macro question, best addressed in one of the many Access forums here at Tek-Tips.
