ADO Filter Property

❮ Complete Recordset Object Reference

The Filter property sets or returns a variant that contains a filter for the data in a Recordset object. The filter allows you to select records that fit a specific criteria.

The Filter property can contain one of the following:

Examples of a criteria string:

  • rs.Filter="Lastname='Smith'"
  • rs.Filter="Lastname='Smith' AND Birthdate >= #4/10/70#"
  • rs.Filter="Lastname='Jonson' OR Lastname='Johnson'"
  • rs.Filter= "Lastname LIKE 'Jon*'"
  • rs.Filter="[Company Name]='Alfred Futterkiste' OR Orders>$300.00"

Example of an array of bookmarks:

dim fname(10)

When the Filter property is set, the cursor moves to the first record in the filtered Recordset. And, when the Filter property is cleared, the cursor moves to the first record in the unfiltered Recordset.
