Query works by itself- no records in form

Hi I am still very new at this but need help with a database problem.

To make things simple, I have a database with a form (frmDataEntry) where users can input information (that mostly goes into the main table (tabFeedback) and later search for it. Ideally, I would like to search through user-input keywords to access the files taht match.

To do this, I created another table (tabKW) which stores all of the keywords upon entry and gives them a unique number (KeywordID). I also created a table (tabKWAssign) that would assign the unique number (item #) for the large record from frmDataEntry to a keyword by creating records including the KeywordID, the item #; and a unique number for the link.

For example: should a user input the key words "dog", "cat" into one record; and "cat", "mouse", into another the keyword identifiers would look like 1,2 then 2;3.

There is a listbox (showkey) that queries the tabKWAssign to show the specific keywords for each record Item #.

This seems to all work.

My problem is here: I would like the user to be able to filter the records by searching for keywords and I don't know how. Right now I have a query that works only when its used not in conjunction with the form that is this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT tabfeedback.[Item #], tabfeedback.[Log Date], tabfeedback.SI, tabfeedback.[Feedback/ Lessons Learned Description], tabfeedback.[Reference/Source Document (DOC #)], tabfeedback.Project, tabfeedback.User, tabfeedback.Nominator, tabfeedback.[Feedback Classification], tabfeedback.Disposition, tabfeedback.[Disposition Status], tabfeedback.[Final Disposition Date], tabfeedback.[Last Update], tabKWAssign.KeywordID
  2. FROM tabfeedback INNER JOIN tabKWAssign ON tabfeedback.[Item #] = tabKWAssign.[Item #]
  3. WHERE (((tabKWAssign.KeywordID)=[forms]![frmdataentry]![cboKWfind]));
cboKWfind is the combo box that displays the possible keywords from tabKW.

Why won't this work? Should I be going about this a different way? Please help, my job depends on this.

Thank you very much

Hi, there. It seems you are on the right track. What are you using as the record source for your form?
