Oh I see, there was no record source - it's set to tMediaContacts now. I feel dumb. So now when I click my filter button, it will find based on my search criteria - then I need to create a report that I click to open after I hit the filter button?
Okay it seems like no other problems with the code, however when I click the filter button nothing happens. Is this when I need a report or subform for the data to show up in? Also, thank you so much for your help on this.
GinaWhipp - thanks for the quick response. I understand little to no code (new to Access) - how would I go about applying that code to my search form? Should I even bother with trying with a query like at the bottom of that link?
