In my production Route Card database I have a set of 3 fields to filter the information - users can use any one, and 2 or all 3 to filter the list of route cards (there are hundreds or records!).
The fields to enter the search criteria are unbound combo boxes. In the last of the 3 (batch number) I'd like the user to be able to enter text that is matched in any part of the string...at present the combo box only matches the characters at the start of the string (which I gather is the normal behaviour). The reason is that the batch number is actually made up from 2 parts - batch number then serial number - and some users prefer to work by serial number!
Is it possible to have Access match any part of the string to the text entered? If it is, can you tell me how as this is way beyond me!!
