I've been trying to create an Access query that will run with a wildcard. I've set up a query by form with a combo box listing all of the options for that query. However, I'd like to also have the option of the end user typing in just a portion of one of the criteria in the combo box and having Access return all of the records that have what they typed as a portion of that field. I've tried adding a &"*" to the end of my criteria, but with no luck. Any advice is appreciated.
