And then when I view it, I have to sort the view by manufacturer, type in Logitech and get all the Logitech webcams in there. Have I gone round this a long convoluted way, or is this the best?
Is there a way for me to just have the Logitech sorted on its own. (I also need from the Name column to search for 'Microsoft LifeCam Front' as well.)

Since you know that you want to find Microsoft and Logitech webcams, it would probably be simpler to filter by inclusion than by exclusion, i.e. "show me anything like this" vs "show me anything except this list".

If you only want Microsoft and Logitech devices, that's your first filter: USB device manufacturer.

Since you know the various model names of their webcams, you can make a short list of device name filters. In my inventory, "webcam" is common to most webcams and "LifeCam" to several Microsoft webcams. A few of them include "webcam" as part of the mic's description, so I've added an extra filter to eliminate those.

Adding an ORDER BY clause lets you specify how you want the results sorted.

Just checking against my inventory and I'm thinking that relaxing the device name might be in order. If I replace
AND (   tblUSBDevices.Name Like '%webcam%'
OR tblUSBDevices.Name Like '%LifeCam%')

with
AND tblUSBDevices.Name Like '%cam%'

I turn up a Logitech QuickCam and a few variations on generic "USB Camera" as devices.

Just an observation. Going with an inclusive filter simplifies the query, useful if you know exactly what you want, where going with a long exclusion list makes it easier to see oddballs pop up.
