Here is an idea of what I'm trying to do. The page is a little messy, but this should give you an idea.
Basically, I have the search fields as the main part of the search page. If you mouse over 'inventory' in the menu bar, it lists different types of autos. Ideally, when these different types are clicked I'd like the results page to display only the corresponding type. The problem I'm running into is that when I add the filter to the recordset (by double-clicking the recordset in the bindings panel), this causes my main search fields to stop working.
