While the general consensus is that DIALOG is the way forward, I’ll try this 
for now since it should work with the code as it is.  In more user-oriented 
parts of the system, I am building more dynamic interfaces with subforms and 
such but for a quick “let me search and display data in this table” admin view 
this is convenient and easy.

This works exactly as I wanted. Thanks!
