You can turn off the current filter by using:
Me.FilterOn = False
You can clear it with:
Me.Filter = ""
If that's not what you want, please explain ...Form doesn't show
I had a form which was based on a query. I added a tab control to the form
and added a couple of tables that I want add to the second page of the tabbed
control as subforms. I changed my query to include the other tables. Now when
I go to open the form the form is blank. If I go into the design view of the
form everything is there but in form view it's just a blank form. Can I not
add other tables to a query and add it to a form.
I have been working on this form for hours and thought I had everything
right and now the form is blank. Can anyone help. I am using Access 2003.

We just upgraded(?) to Access 2007 and the first thing I have come
across is this:
I have a simple continuous form where the query is based on the value
in the control 'box_district'. 'box_district' is in the form header.
I have the detail of the form hidden until 'box_district' gets
updated. This code bombs at the asterisked line but it is because the
detail does not become visible as it should based on the third line.
Was something changed that would prevent 'me.detail.visible = true'

I hope this doesn't come across as stupid, but I'm almost completely

containing some business information, and he'd like to have me import
it into Quickbooks. The problem I have is that I cannot get to the
information to export it from Access.

a 'splash screen' type of thing. Has my client's logo, and the name of
the fellow who wrote the Access app.

If I simply enter the values into the criteria on the QBE grid it would be

However I need to be able to reproduce this criteria via a form. I am using
a list box to provide the criteria and it works with individual criteria
i.e. just "1C" but I cannot reproduce the OR statement within the list box
in a way that is correctly picked by the query.
If it makes any difference I am typing the value into the list box.
