Access function question

  Belatucadrus 10:40 12 Jun 2005

I want to add a "Filter by selection" button to an Access form, but the only option available in the Wizard is "Filter by form".
What changes to I need to make to the code to get the button to work as desired ?

Lets bump this back up in the hope some VB expert logs on.

Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be working as desired, and time is against me, so I've just put some notes in the instructions on how to use the taskbar buttons.

It may interest some of you to know that I found out how to do this by accident.
When using the wizard to add a form button, you get to the part where you select how you want it to appear on the form, you can add text, or select from a range of image options that don't affect the function of the button in any way.

Except for filter buttons, where the filter icon you select allocates the function as well.
This may seem obvious, but I can't find any reference to it anywhere useful and people who know a hell of a lot more about Access than me didn't know either. Nice one Bill.
Now all I need to do is allocate the function to a toggle button, down for filtered, up for not, I need to do some more reading I think.
