I received a question as a result of one of my other posts:
please help me. i’ve been trying to solve this problem but didn’t success. how to open a specific record in access 2016 with two conditions? for example i want to open a specific record based on Company Name and Contact Title.
…So it would be helpful to clarify this a bit more.
So what happens if you want to specify more commands in your “wherecondition”?
Here’s a little example:
The following image is of a selection form asking for 2 selections, “Employee” and “Shipped Via”
The form just contains 2 combo boxes, nothing special.
…and it opens this:
…just based on the 2 criteria I asked for on the previous form.
The code behind the command button is pretty straight forward:
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmOrders-20200530", acFormDS, , "[EmployeeID]=" & Me.cboEmployee & " AND [ShipVia]= " & Me.cboShipVia
Here’s another code example based on something totally unrelated:
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmName", acFormDS, , "[FirstName]='Alex' AND [ Class ]= ''2A'"
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmName", acFormDS, , "[FirstName]=" & Me.cboStudentNumber & " AND [ Class ]= '" & Me.cboClassName & "'"
Please note that if the value is text, you need to enclose it in apostrophes, but not when the value is a number.
Let me know if you have questions.by
