Hi All,

This criteria should return all record if the parameter is null or the user
just press enter. But it's not working please help.

IIf([Enter Area Code:] Is Null,"Is not Null",[Enter Area Code:])

TIA

IIf([Enter Area Code:] Is Null,"Is not Null",[Enter Area Code:])

That will search for the literal text string "Is not Null" - and I doubt any
area codes match that.

Gina's suggestion will work; a bit better (since it doesn't depend on
wildcards) is

[Enter area code:] OR [Enter area code:] IS NULL
