    hi,

    i am new user to Access and trying to develop the form. I have 1 table with
    Code and Description. I have bound the drop down box to code column and would
    like to display the description for the code selected. Can you please help me
    how I can display this.

    Thanks in advance.

    The row source of the combo should include both fields
    Select Code, Description From TableName

    Now, you have to options to display the Description in another Text box
    1. In the control source of the second text box you can write
    = [ComboName].Column(1)

    2. On the after update event of the combo you can write the code
    Me.[TextBoxName] = Me.[ComboName].Column(1)
    --
    If I answered your question, please mark it as an answer. That way, it will
    stay saved for a longer time, so other can benifit from it.

    Good luck

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!
