Default Add Filter to a query using VB

Anyone have any idea how I can add a filter to a query for a checkbox button. I use the checkbox to either list all products or with quantity >0. This form also works on 6 filters that use a combo box and those work fine. I just need to add one more filter for the checkbox. How can I do that.

    Me.FilterOn = False
    Me.Filter = "Qty >0"
    Me.FilterOn = True

The above code does not seem to work for me

Since you have other filters that are working fine, you must be using similar code and, for all intents and purposes, know what you're doing.

My suggestion would be to try putting the filter in a query and make sure you're getting the syntax for your Me.Filter value correct...

Go to the Quantity field in your query, enter the criteria >0, change to SQL view of the query and extract the string that follows the "Where" clause in the query. It might be as simple as needing a space between > and 0.

You might also try Me.Requery instead of Me.Refresh.

As I understood your problem, your using a limited procedure True and False.

You might use SQL code in VBA instead and control your query.

A bit of practice, is waht you need.
