Order By, Filter On Load

Order By On Load, Filter On Load Properties

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I'm going to show you how to use the Filter On Load and Order By On Load properties in your Microsoft Access forms. This will allow you to make the filters and sorting preferences you set in your forms stay persistent (or not, if you prefer) when you close and reopen your forms.

Rashad from Dubai, UAE (a Platinum Member) asks: I've noticed that when I put a custom sort on my forms, it stays there the next time I open the form. However when I apply a filter, it goes away. Is there any way to have the filter stay ON so the next time I open the form I don't have to re-apply it?


I'll show you how to use the Me.Filter, Me.FilterOn, Me.OrderBy, and Me.OrderByOn properties to control those settings in your VBA code so you can specify what you want them to be when the form loads. Then we'll make some custom sort and filter combo boxes so you can prepare some popular choices for your users. With a couple of clicks they can easily apply sorting and filtering such as "order by last name and filter where first name starts with the letter R."
