Multiple Values in Single Field

I have inherited a medical database in which there are multiple values
stored in a single field (ie. "Current Conditions" field might contain
1-20 different conditions, separated by comma (ie. "Heart
Disease,Hyper Tyroid,Cancer" etc.

I would like to search via combo box for any one or more than one
value in this field, ie-what patients have Heart Disease or Cancer by
selecting these disorders off the combo box list.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a recordsource
SELECT * FROM PatientConditio nsTable
WHERE [Current Conditions]
LIKE "*" & Me.cboCondition & "*"

or as a saved query
SELECT * FROM PatientConditio nsTable
WHERE [Current Conditions]
LIKE "*" & [Forms]![frmConditions]![cboConditions] & "*"

RKC gave you the pointer to do it. Since you need multiple choices, I
would recommend that you create a filter string in your form and I would
not use a combo box. I would use a list box, set the listbox to type
Simple so that you can make multiple selections. Then run thru the list
of selected items. This is aircode but may help you out. I will use
the word ListBox to refer to your listbox name. It assumes column 0
where the name is held CC is current conditions

Sub AirCode
If Me.Listbox.item sselected.count > 0 then
'make sure something is selected
Dim var As Variant
Dim sf As String 'string filter
for each var in Me.Listbox.Item sSelected
'create a list of each
sf = sf & "([CC] LIKE *" & Me.ListBox.Colu mn(0,var) & "*) Or "
next
sf = Left(sf,len(sf) - 4) 'remove the word OR
Me.Filter = sf
Me.FilterOn = True
else
msgbox "Please select the condition to check for:
endif
End Sub

You now have the sf string you can use in a query, a form, a report,
whatever.

Please see online help in Access for properties, methods, and functions
you may not be familiar with in the above code.

I have a table in Access with about 3000 records. There are ~60 unique values in the ID field for the 3000 records.

I was thinking this could be done if I have an exported flag column in the table, and I search for the max (or min) on the ID...

Ok' I have 2 tables. The first being my main table where each record has a 'FigureID' txt box. (Indexed - No duplicates) The second being my sub table where reporting is entered for these Figures.
