Controlling a Find Query

P: n/a
I'm working with a form and need some help customizing the results of
a find query. I dug thru the archives and used this post
(http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...nrp2.clara.net)
to help with a find query that would launch the Find box (aka Ctrl+F).

Here's the problem:
When the Find box launches, the "Look In" field is set to "title" by
default. To successfully find any data, one has to click the "Look
In" drop down box and choose "Customers." How can I automate this
process? Or, how can I remove "title" as an option in the "Look In"
dropdown box (preferred)?

This seems like one of those quirky little things... Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Why don`t you put a combo on the form to do this.

Use the wizard and you will find an option - find a record on the form based on
the value I select in the combo --
- should do what you want

I just tried it... I'm not able to select anything in the combo box;
when I click on the combo box data, nothing happens. What'd I miss?
