Change the criteria each time a query runs. Parameter queries
A parameter query is a type of query that prompts the user for input when it is run. This allows the query to be more flexible and dynamic, as it can adapt to different situations and criteria. To create a parameter query in Access, follow these steps:

1. Open the query that you want to modify or create a new query in Design view.
2. In the Criteria row of the field that you want to apply the parameter to, enter a prompt enclosed in square brackets. For example, [Enter a date] or [Enter a product name].
3. Save and run the query. A dialog box will appear asking you to enter the value for the parameter. You can enter any valid expression that matches the data type of the field. For example, if the field is a date, you can enter #12/31/2020# or Between #1/1/2020# And #12/31/2020#.
4. Click OK to see the results of the query based on the parameter value that you entered.

You can use multiple parameters in a query by entering different prompts in different fields. You can also use parameters in other parts of the query, such as the Sort row, the Show row, or the expression builder. Parameter queries are useful for creating interactive reports, forms, and charts that can be customized by the user. Change the criteria each time a query runs. Parameter queries.
