    I created a simple drop down list from which users can select to enter data
    into a table. However, it is still allowing a user to enter a value outside
    of that drop down list. How can I prevent the user from entering values that
    do not appear in the drop down menu?

    1. Set the Limit To List property of the combo to Yes.

    2. Open the Relationships window (Tools menu), and create a relation between
    this table and the one that holds the lookup values (the combo's RowSource).
    In the Create Relationship dialog, check the box for Referential Integrity.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
