    Hi there i wonder if you can help. I am trying to create a query by form where i have used a form that has various controls on. I wanted to use these controls as the criteria for my search. Once the Search command button is selected that this would open up the results that would show the relevant details. I had initially just linked the controls on the form to the criteria section of a query. However some of the controls could sometimes be Null. i know this is not such a problem, as you can just use the following formula.

    [Forms]![frmStudentSearch]![cboCourseSearch] or
    [Forms]![frmStudentSearch]![cboCourseSearch] is null

    However i have 9 controls ranging from text boxes, combo boxes and two check boxes, and it seems to always crash and cause problems. Just to let you know that the query is based upon the data in three linking tables

    I know it may be easier to use VB Code, however unfortunately this is an area that i fall down on. Any Advice or guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
