you're comparing as such: [Enter the Year of Birth] = Year([DOB])
Yes?

Hi mate and tx but no go :(

I have to use a Parameter search so I need a question dialog box to appear, and it has to search on the Year in the PetDOB Table which has 01/01/1999 etc in it.

The above gets me the question dialog box, but zip in results.

Is that understandable?

Yes, however I can't force the same result on Access 2007.
You might try wrapping them both in CInt
i.e. CInt( [Enter the Year of Birth] ) = CInt( [DOBField] )

Hi again mate and thank you!!

Just reveresed your first one Year([PetDOB])=[Enter Year] Works a treat as well :)

I do not know why this one works and your first one did not?

I may well be back with more LOL
