Searching Using Combo Boxes

P: n/a
Does any one know if it is possible to search a database by using
combo boxes from a form.

I have a form which includes comboboxes. I want to know If I can use
these combo boxes to search, i.e. I have a location combobox, and If I
wanted to select all entries from that location, would it be possible
to enter a find mode like you do in Filemaker pro 5.5 then select the
relevant location coupled with any other search data, click find and
the relevant records would be displayed in the same format of the
form. (Again exactly the way you can with Filemaker).

Kindest Regards
