i have a database with over 12000 records the input data table is fine. when i run a query i'm no longer getting a popup window as a search. i'm looking for someone to walk me thru the creation of a pop up window. i have spent two weeks on this and have nothing to show for it. i'm not even able to get a tech on phone from microsoft so that the database could be shared

I assume by "popup window", you are are referring to the dialog box which opens asking for a parameter to a query. I don't use them because it's usually more user friendly to offer users a combo box on a form as the parameter. That means the user only has to select a valid value from the list in the combo box, not remember and type in the exact word or date they want. However, to address you specific question, the query should look like this:
SELECT field1, field2, field3
WHERE field1 = [Enter the right value for a parameter here]
It sounds like, for some reason that WHERE clause has been removed.
If you can't find and fix the problem from this overview, you can upload it as an attachment for someone to look at. Remove any sensitive or confidential data from a copy of the accdb for upload if you want to do that. Leave only enough sample data to illustrate the requirement.

Unfortunately, a minor health problem is preventing me from staying on line today. I'll see if I can't get someone else to step in. I apologize.
That said, you are using terms that come from your own specific work environment, but which mean little to someone outside, e.g. "Main Team Query Form KEEP (Option 1-7) " and " By Spread Number Keep (Option-1)". You know what you mean by "KEEP (Option 1-7)" and "Spread Number Keep" but, of course, no one else can know that. It's better to explain using more generic terms that anyone can relate to. Even more useful will be an example of the actual SQL from that query.
That said, I'm off to try to get into the clinic, but before I go I'll drop a request to see if someone can't step in.
