Default Filtering a Database

I am attempting to filter a database using a list from a separate query. Users choose an entry from the list rather than manually inputting the information. I have not been able to get the syntax correct. Does anyone have a suggestion on how this can be do it at all?

If I understand clearly you will like to filter records within a form.
You can just add a list box or combo box to your form and based the row source on a pre-define query with only the records you will like then to see. On the combo or list box properties "limit to list' option select "yes".
