Filter Database by user selection

(Robert H) #1

I’ve been struggling with a solution to filter database results based upon a user selection. Initially was looking for a dynamic webpage that would apply a filter based upon a link the user selected but seems something like that doesn’t seem to exist.

I’m looking for a different alternative. Is there a way to use a drop down box that is populated by a field in the database (Last Name). The user would select the name from the drop down and the database table would filter based upon that?

In my mind I am thinking of something like an MS Access form with several fields that would populate based upon what the user selected from a drop down combo box that applied a filter to the data.

Again, I appreciate any help.

I believe that easyDB will show a table and let you sort and filter results

Yeah, I checked that out, but it doesn’t give the option for a drop down menu.
